Not calling anyone out in particular, so no one take this personally.

I hate when +/- is used to describe any individuals play.

If you want to say Jones plays bad defense because he doesn't close the gaps quick enough, or he chases back out too high, doesn't keep his feet or stick active or just doesn't take the body enough. Those are all good talking points. The +/-, stat is effected by everyone one the ice as well as match-ups from the coach. To me it's the worst stat in hockey.
