Whoever wrote up that list apparently doesn't watch hockey.

That said, I always get a kick out of how some people here treat opinions from articles as if they proverbially came from above.

Disagree. Stuart has been solid this season.


He was solid just before the Christmas break; then his rough stretch there for a few months; now he's getting back to how he played earlier this season.

You know, this reminds me of the age-old statement..."there are lies, there are damned lies, and then there are statistics."

i'm not really a scotty neidermayer fan, but him accompanying stuart on that list shows just how credible the list is...that being not at all.

I like this team.

Lidstrom's PP impact should be way higher than that.

Anyone who can actually watch the game of hockey knows better than what that POS says. He's made mistakes but overall the positives completely outweigh the negatives.

This is simply looking at how the player does compared to his teammates (only considering those who have played in most of the games this season). I've stated why Stuart is at a disadvantage in that kind of a comparison (weaker teammates than normal, ice-time in situations that are likelier to lead to goals, etc.)... Obviously Stuart would have far better numbers by being on the ice with his normal linemates like Kronwall, Flip, Williams, etc, who can actually score on occasion, but this is a rational analysis of the numbers, many people are acting like the author simply made things up or distorted the numbers.

Consider, Neidermayer is the LOWEST duck in +/-... which is a very telling stat considering he's normally on the ice with Anaheim's more offensively productive players. Neids is one of the best D-men of the past 20 years, but he's had a pretty poor season. Now, he's still far more valuable than someone like Wisniewski, and I don't think the obviousness of that is lost on the author.
