Marty St. Louis A Plus Player During A Bad Year

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

“I try to be a complete player on both sides of the red line,” said St. Louis, who has 67 points, with 25 goals, and is plus-6.

Besides, he added, “Offense comes from good defensive positioning.”

Plus-minus is a tricky statistic in that it depends so much on one’s teammates and situations that can be out of one’s control.

In short, a plus is awarded for being on the ice when a player’s team scores. A minus is assessed for being on the ice when the opposition scores. So in a season in which Tampa Bay has been outscored 175-224, a differential of minus-49, being plus-6 is pretty extraordinary.
