I went back and had a look at Sid versus AO, and others in overpass excellent adjusted Even-strength plus minus and it has through that 10 seasons

AE 180 and Sid 137

Looking further into his study here is how some of the players discussed in this thread have done through 2011

Forsberg 303
Mario 273
Federov 227
AO 208
Sid 154
In 2009-10, Crosby took on a pretty big defensive role with the Penguins, while Malkin got the prime offensive zone faceoffs. Ovechkin got all the prime offensive opportunities in Washington.

Plus-minus, adjusted or otherwise, doesn't take roles into account.
