Exactly. The stat is relevant. Dismissing it is silly.
I'll jump in and agree +/- is relevant, but not as telling as some may think. You have to look at it a certain way
For example, Larkin being +11 on our team says something.
When OV was -30 and scored 50 goals, thats absolutely pathetic.
If someone is -15 and theyre team is in last place and everyone else is around -15, its a team stat.
If someone is a career +400 player, such as Lidstrom, it shows that his teams were always relevant and he played a huge part in that
