uh, no spanky. It doesnt account points accumulated on the PP, it only shows how bad someone might have been out there on your shift, forward or defense. One of the most flawed stats in professional sports.

I disagree. I truly think it is the most overrated stat in hockey. Using it to say if a player is good or bad defensively is complete misuse of the stat.

Ever since Bertuzzi has been with Langkow he has been a lot better 5 on 5. I'd say his +/- stat was poorly reflected by his time with Iginla. They simply aren't the best defensively and had no offensive chemistry which resulted in a ton of goals against early in the season.

Good signing for the price they paid, if it was any more I don't know how I would like it right now. When they signed him a figured he would score 20 goals for sure but was guessing closer to 30. I guess we will see how it pans out.
