The Canes' Rod Brind'Amour is minus-26 for the season, last in the league, after his minus-3 game Saturday in the 4-2 loss to Boston. He also is second in the NHL in faceoff percentage. He serves as team captain. He's played with a broken nose, with a sore knee.
Brind'Amour says the plus/minus can be a misleading stat. Coach Paul Maurice agrees. Sometimes, they say, the intangibles, on and off the ice, are as important as a tangible statistic.
