By this definition JBo is much better defensively than Kronwall.
I think this is the best way to read plus/minus stats. - IN CONTEXT.
their is no point comparing a blackhawk(a team that is plus 39 and therefore NO player should be a minus) to a panther(a team that is -39 and therefore most likely no player is a plus player)
jaybo has been on the ice for 12 more goals for then against vs his team despite the fact he plays for a terrible team and is on the ice for that terrible team more often
kronwall on the other hand has been on the ice for 12 more goals against then for vs his team despite the fact he plays for a good team
jaybo is in fact a plus 24 better then kronwall(um thats HUGE) and this is the only way GM's and coachs actually judge player vs player in terms of plus/minus
