Right, let's leave Emelin in Russia because he was a -18 last season. Sure he brings hits, but he was -18!!!!

+/- is a terrible stat unless comparing among a team (and still you need to dig deeper to find out more to that stat anyway).

Diaz was great until he got injured. He was also a rookie playing his first year on NA ice. He was a surprise and will only get better.

Weber, who knows. He had some great games but mostly bad ones.

Commodore is garbage. How many times have you even seen Hamilton this year? He's not an NHL caliber player in the slightest anymore. Injuries slowed him down far too much. There's a reason he has only seen 40-50 games in the last couple of seasons.

Not hard to see why. He throws hits and he's big. This forum has a ridiculous love for that, regardless of the caliber of the player.

I think if this team had 6 Commodores and 12 Artyukhins, some posters on this forum would have an orgasm
Actually the same could be said about 6 Diaz's and 12 Plekanecs. Right ?
