The actual point is...

there are many defenseman who can get the puck out of the zone; many of whom also are on the Rangers as getting the puck out of the zone was not difficult. If a defenseman did it with Rucchin's line out there, there was a less chance to get the plus for doing the same thing as Rozsival did while out there with Jagr. Point is, the defensemen didn't create the goal, Jagr did. I didn't miss the fact that Jagr and the forwards cycled and passed the puck around. I agree with that. I just don't think a defenseman had to do much to get the puck to him; comparatively speaking. Poti was +16 while not playing with Jagr for most of the time. Can someone please explain how the most maligned defenseman on the Rangers, who didn't score many points, and who plays such horrible defense, and who played with defensive partners who were equally as bad, ended up a +16? My guess is that if he did play with Jagr as much, he too would've been +30-something - which is why I criticize Rozsival so much.
