I find it to be a worthwhile stat when you compare guys on the same team.

For example, Kessel was a -10 while Clarke Macarthur was a +2 on the same team, and with the first line scoring much more than the second.

Indicates that the first line was terrible defensively.

Kessel easily puts in the least amount of effort defensively between him Lupul and Bozie.

So we can arrive at the conclusion that Phil Kessel is one of the worst defensive top-six players in the league.

Pretty open and shut.
