If he's on the ice when a goal is scored against his team, he gets a -1.

At least, that's what NHL Hitz has lead me to believe.... -Jag

You only get a plus or a minus on even strength goals, so shorthand and power play goals don't count.

What a ripoff. You should get a +2. -Jag

You do get a plus or minus for a shorthanded goal. I was going by what I have been told over and over by the local announcers. I looked around a bit to verify that the information was correct and found this link, which states: When an even-strength or shorthanded goal is scored, every player on the ice for the team scoring the goal is credited with a plus. Every player on the ice for the team scored against gets a minus. A player's overall total is calculated by subtracting the minuses from the pluses. A high plus total is taken to suggest that a guy is a good defensive player. I verified it on another site, so I apologize for the misinformation.

That's insane.

Y!: # 8 Posted on 5.4.03 0827.40 Reposted on: 5.4.10 0827.48 ... Orr's +/- was +124, but I believe that those on the ice when a PP goal was scored were credited with pluses at that time. That isn't the case anymore. I think the highest +/- since the new standards came into effect is Wayne Gretzky's +98 in 1984-85.

Y!: # 9 Posted on 5.4.03 2319.27 Reposted on: 5.4.10 2322.13 What makes the gaudy plus/minus ratings of Gretzky and Orr even more absurd is the fact that they were both on the ice for somewhere around half of any given game (well, Gretzky not quite half and Orr just over half). A plus/minus of +20 or better is excellent--only 30 or so guys in the league this year did better. Forsberg and Hedjuk lead the league with +50, which I'd consider pretty ridiculous; but numbers like +98 and +124 are not of this world.

I believe around +50 is the standard for the winner of this category at the end of the season.

Forsberg (COL,LW) +52 Milan Hejduk (COL,RW) +52 3 N. Lidstrom (DET,D) +40 4 Jere Lehtinen (DAL,RW) +39 5 D. Hatcher (DAL,D) +37 6 Mike Modano (DAL,C) +34 Alex Tanguay (COL,LW) +34 8 E. Desjardins (PHI,D) +30 Adam Foote (COL,D) +30 10 Zdeno Chara (OTT,D) +29 So, as you can see, it helps to have Patrick Roy or Marty Turco as your goaltender :-P Phil
