#1077527 Yet Another Reason Why Plus/Minus Is Stupid

Posted by msweet on 30 December 2011 - 11:50 AM

+/- is just one of many measures of a players performance and is of more use to compare players on the same team not team to team.
The Devils' current +/- is a fairly accurate description of the quality of play from each player relative to other Devils.

T, by your own admission "We all know they are having quite a bizarre season"
Which means stats, including +/- are going to deviate from what you see typically. You should not use an anomaly as an example to make your argument. Do the same analysis for say 10 teams and I'll bet your "difference" column won't look so off.

#981491 Langenbrunner Just scored for Dallas

I dont get why someone would be upset over a, now ex-devil's career. Not to mention Langs is bigger in Dallas (pun not intended) then he was up here in NJ. He is a skilled player but he just didnt offer what was needed in the last year or two here. Thats fine and he should be able to go else where and prosper with his career. You guys shouldnt be sour about him at all. You shouldnt be sour about any other player that was once a Devil. Moving to a different team is part of the business. You cant judge someone just because they left NJ. He apparently has chemistry forming down there with his line mates which is great to see. Its nice to see someone jump ship intime.

Do the right thing here and be happy for the guy. Its the least you can do as a Devils fan for everything he gave us in the past.


I am sorry but I am not a hockey fan that is all about "feel-good"

I bleed Devils' red and when a player dogs-it or has a bad attitude and he is the captain no less...well good riddance... I don't hope he does well on any other team not named the Devils...fvck all other teams not named NJD....fvck all other players not in NJD uniforms.

Kinda feels like 1995 again because we have a lot of young new players.

Dude weren't you 2 in 95? :P Not that I'd know how 95 felt either.


Me neither :( .. I was 6


Ugh, you people.... you're making me feel so old.... I was in my early twenties.



LOL, I was a sophomore in high school in '95... I feel old too with all these young'ins. :P



Stop complaining all of you... I just had my 5th kid in 95..talk about feeling old now
