machinehead said in post 28 that they were not great both ways, which is true. amazing ralph responded in post 29 that that argument does not hold up b/c their +/- were high.

no one said it was less impressive. if anything, it is more impressive that they could be among the worst defensively in the entire league, get scored on constantly, and still have very high +/-.

only spectacular ES and SH scoring could produce those numbers. gretzky is probably the only player in history who could do it.
