In fantasy hockey pure scoring counts for everything , in real hockey the prevention of goals is half of the equation.

This is Dats, an elite scorer who is also elite defensively we are talking about here, not Bob Gainey (who is also over rated when compared to a guy like Craig Ramsey IMO, being part of a dynasty can do that for a player).
I've said it before and I'll say it again: +/- is the most meaningless stat in hockey. YOU are the only poster that I've ever seen obsess on +/-. Nobody else even brings it up that I've seen. +/- is just GAA for goaltenders: It's a team stat that tells you absolutely nothing about the individual player.
