As for + and -, never forget that there is FOUR other players on the ice. Their mistake can make your + and - stats look pretty bad.
So you basicly prefer the Brisbois 00/01 where he scored 15 goals 36 points and a -31, compared to Brisbois this year where he isn't scoring goals but is playing well defencivly and still is producing points he has 13 assists on pace for 30 points and +25, assuming he comes somewhat close to his projected total I think most would much prefer the way Brisboise is playing this year apposed to the old Brisbois who scored some more goals and took chances so what that was the Brisboise that made all the fans hate him and tried to boo him out of town.

Therrien did not use him wisely, always playing him against the opponet's top lines and in short handed situation and in the last minutes of every game. That is why he looked so bad.
Ya he had a decent season that year, and your probly right Therrien didn't play him correctly but he's still better now.
