This has come up on THF but for those who have not seen it, the +/- stats for this year make very interesting reading. Now I know that they can be criticised as being an inexact tool but they came up as MK have released Clay Anderson who was at -28 on a pretty brutal team.

Looking at the Devils stats, Gleason Fournier is at an incredible +31, miles clear of the next player (Joey Martin at +18) and given how he plays the game, I was bowled over by that.... looking at D Men, bar Fourns, they are all tightly grouped around +12/13 but the forwards are a little more disparate. Behind Martin are Hedden and Benti (+15) and then Linglet and Dixon. The only two on negatives are Myers (no real surprise given his role this season) and the departed Faryna.

It might be me being a stats nerd (and having a slow work day) but I was amazed by the consistency of stats (taking out the few outliers such as Fournier), in contrast Belfast have a few very strong performers (Dwyer, Riley, Murphy and MacFaull) but then there is a significant drop off, maybe indicating an over reliance on the top performers?

Not totally sure what all this proves but.... I found it interesting!
