I found this interesting as well:
Kovalchuk, prior to being acquired by the Devils: -65 in 594 games
Nash, prior to be acquired by the Rangers: -71 in 674 games
Perhaps the Thrashers were better in their days with Kovalchuk than the Blue Jackets are/were, but all you heard about was how terrible Kovalchuk was defensively with his massive career negative.
Why is noone talking about Nash's pretty awful career +/- ?
