In the case of most of the guys you posted here, it's a case of 1-2 "bad" playoff runs obscuring several really really good ones.

If you go look at the Sedins, they are constantly at the top or in the middle of their team in terms of +/- in the playoffs, despite playing against the most difficult competition. Out of 9 times in the playoffs, Henrik Sedin posted a negative +/- 3 times. He was towards the bottom of his team only 2 times. Ditto Daniel Sedin.

Ditto Patrick Kane, he had 1 year where he was a -9, his first year in the playoffs, other than that he's been OK.

In Danny Briere's case, it's one really good playoff run (09-10) making his stats look a lot better than they really are. For 3 of his 5 playoff runs in Philadelphia, he's been at or near the bottom of the team in +/-. He's been a + player only 20% (1 out of the 5 playoffs) of the time.
