Lowest +/-'s In The NHL

687- Brad Boyes -14
686- Rod Brind'Amour -13
685- Andy McDonald -12
682- Sergei Samsonov -10
679- Todd Bertuzzi -9
677- Keith Tkachuk -9
676- "Big" Greg De Vries -9

M. Schneider with -11 at 683

As we know players like Tkachuk and Brind'Amour will never be regarded as great players and will never be in the Hall of Fame. These players have never helped a team in the playoffs and get in them (Thrashers) or help win a Stanley Cup (Canes). And, Boris Valabik with a +1 will be up there with Bobby Orr and Nic Lidstrom as one of the greats and get this Thrasher team to drink from the cups of all cups.

P.S- Boris is a fine 3rd pairing defenseman. I just can't think he is better than a guaranteed Hall of Famer like Tkachuk or Brind'Amour.

EDIT
Just in, Ladies and Gentlemen: Boris Valabik has better +/- than Henrik Zetterberg, who has a rating of -1, and Jarome Ignila with a rating -2. Why don't the Red Wings and Flames want Valabik?

Editorial Position: DW, make a trade for one of the two because obviously Boris is a better player based on this very accurate perfect statistic we call the +/-.

OH, NICE ANALYSIS FROGGIE; BORIS VALABIK=HALL OF FAMER KEITH TKACHUK IS THE REASON THE BLUES HAVE A BAD RECORD.

In all seriousness, THAT is an analysis.

P.S. I wish I hadn't used up all my moves on fantasy. Brad Boyes is the reason I have such a terrible plus/minus.
