And like I said he plays easy minutes so
figure in that all his PP points and his +/- looks even worse.
Hes always scored big goals and used to be money on the PP so i tend to give him a pass sometimes but his 2 way play is awful, his corner work is below par and he has zero physical game. So like I said hardly great.
Also FYI I've had season tickets the last 4 years so I've watched my fair share thank you.
Actually the opposite. Same with the Kanes, Sedins, etc mentioned upthread. Their +/- numbers look worse because a lot of their scoring is coming on the PP and not counted in the +/-.
I'm not arguing he isn't horrible defensively; he is. He's small, not good on draws, and not gritty or strong along the boards so you can't really shift him to the wing. But calling him a net negative based on a stat that's skewed against guys who play a lot of PP minutes isn't fair.
