When did we start using statistics alone to judge a player? I know many of us don't go out of our way to watch Calgary often (I picked up a discounted Game Center this year so I've been able to watch a handful of games when I'm not doing anything), but JBo is a pretty solid player. Comparing him to Kronwall defensively this season is an insult, but Kronner is definitely the superior offensive guy. Overall, it's pretty close.

+/- is only a useful stat in the right situation. This is not one of those times.

I also enjoy those who criticize Holland for never ever making moves or adding roster players that improve this team but still loathe the idea of adding a guy who would probably be an upgrade over anyone else we can currently ice and is still under 30. Obviously, it's dependent on the price we pay.
