It's not a terrible stat in certain aspects. It's very useful when comparing players on the same team, especially players on the same line or D-Pairing.
I am not looking forward to listen to everyone whine about Crosby whining in this thread.
Wings win 3-2
I think Lidstrom's +/- this year shows that it isn't always even useful for that
unless anyone seriously thinks Lidstrom is the worst even strength defenseman on the team(excluding Kindl since he wasn't a regular when Stuart was healthy)?
