FLYERS: How Important is +/-

INSIDE THE FLYERS: PLUS/MINUS RATINGS ARE REVEALING – TO A POINT

…I think the players sum it up best with their quotes in this article: when you’re on the plus side, you like to think it’s a meaningful statistic, but when you’re on the minus side, the whole statistic is somewhat irrelevant. I think there’s something to be said for the Flyers’ scenario, in that they have three defensemen or so in the upper echelon of the league’s +/- ratings, because it shows me that the Flyers are playing a strong defensive game. The fact that so many forwards are in the plus is just an added bonus. On the whole, it’s not a statistic I like to look all that much into, but that doesn’t mean I’m not hoping Andrej Meszaros – or another Flyers defenseman, for that matter – takes the NHL +/- title by season’s end.
