Plus/Minus is a super super super bad stat. They rightfully are oblivious to that. I honestly keep track of good/bad things I did in my head. Cleared a puck on a rebound? +1, stick-checked a tap-in? +1, giveaway? -1, and so on. +/- is a team stat and really shows nothing other than that you were on the ice. Somebody gives away the puck, another person doesn't skate back and the defenseman doesn't stop a 2on1? Enjoy the -1, you really must suck. Sorry, but people who look at +/- and give it any value don't get it, imo.
