Jagr is worth no more than a 3rd rounder.

The hyphen explanation doesn't make any sense. Why say someone is plus-6, when you mean they are plus 6? And why use a hyphen when it can be confused with a minus sign unless you think gibberish is cool.. http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/576/01/ I think it is a negative sign and was used when the statistic was first introduced to indicate the author was referring to plus/minus. It is no longer necessary.

Last season, the Rangers topped the Eastern Conference with 109 points. Their goal differential was plus-39. And the team Scott Gomez was playing for finished dead last with a differential of minus-14. The negative sign or dash, or whatever it is, serves no useful purpose. Please stop using this goofy method of discussing plus and minus. It mars what is otherwise a very good article which includes this excellent observation about FB 55, whose play has been inspired, if somewhat unappreciated. I marvel at just how cool Francis is with the puck, almost always making the best play and doing so quickly and effortlessly. He is really seeing the ice and knows just how much time he has to make a play. And I agree that Beaulieu is further along the road in his development than Pateryn and Tinordi, both of whom who played very well when called up. _________________________________________________ Nathan Beaulieu, the latest rookie defenceman into the revolving door created by Raphael Diaz’s injury, outshone his predecessors, Greg Pateryn and Jarred Tinordi. Beaulieu played 17:17, including 1:04 on the power-play. There were some jitters, but Beaulieu was paired with wise old vet Francis Bouillon, who’s been running a Dman daycare since Diaz went down.
