Is there a goal differential/bonus if you score against a top line as opposed to the 3rd or 4th line?

Congrats. I give you credit for one of the most imaginative uses of "reaching".
Prust's higher +/- does not prove that he is a better ES player than Plekanec, it is the result of circumstance. Prust was in a different, tougher role for the Rangers last season, and was -1. Doesn't mean he's better at 29 than he was at 28. I'm sure you can see the effect of context on +/-. It's good thing to have production when given soft minutes, but you should be aware of the context when discussing that production.
