+/- is a weak way to judge a players value. So many variables he cannot control. If fact, Lundqvist has a part in every single ranger having a better +/- than they should have. He has carried that team for the past half decade. McD is a great dman, but Anton Stralman had a BETTER +/- than him last year. That stat is flawed.
