Plus-minus, adjusted or otherwise, doesn't take roles into account.
I understand that and forgot to list it on the notes in my last post.

It's pretty obvious that the roles for Federov and Mario were quite different in 96 despite both being 1st line centers.

Jagr and Mario's roles were more similar.

The difference in offensive zone starts at ES for Sid (56.7) and Malkin (58.1) and AO (55.6) were still pretty close in 10.

From 11 onwards we do see a larger split between the 2 Pittsburg players

In 11 Malkin 54.7 to 47.0 for Sid

In 12 Malkin 65.9 to 57.7 for Sid

In 13 Malkin 63.6 to 47.1 for Sid
