Bob Gainey won the Selke trophy in 79/80, while he was -2.
On the other hand, Jaromir Jagr is currently +289 in his career, but has been regarded as one of the biggest "floaters" in the league.
I agree that it's very overrated. There are more factors than individual play that come into play when taking +/- into account.
