Good catch. It's almost comical how he finds a way to contribute to goals against, even in the most subtle and unexpected ways. And I guess it gives us a reason to appreciate guys who can actually play defense at this level, and maybe provides a little context for a guy like Pitkanen who only has 1 minus on his record despite skating big minutes.

At this point, just based on the massive gap between him and the pack, I'm wondering if Sanguinetti would have the worst rate of subjective minuses in the league. Surely there aren't many other defensemen who play this way for more than a game or two before being sent down.
