It's funny how those things happen when you get put with decent players and a solid goalie how a +- can go up. Heck Quine isn't even that good in his own zone but that stat would tell you so. Kanuck's head is going to explode if Windsor gets the Memorial Cup.
Agree that +/- is a very misleading stat. Connor Brown was a -75 or so, and he went in the 5th round to the Leafs. He was just on a bad team, and played alot of minutes.
During Majors Memorial run, they had half their team in the top 20 for +/-, but it was clear that their players werent the cream of OHL, but rather a product of their team/environment.
Personally, I think London will get it. If Windsor misses playoffs, and losing some key players, they may not have the team to compete for Mem Cup. But, hey, look at the Saskatoon Blades?? Anything is possible.
