It might keep him out of minus a little bit, that's about it. That's my whole point about the stat, it's only useful when it's extreme, or when it's used in certain comparisons with other stats or other players

The reason for the +12 is because when he is on the ice he brings that offensive threat. Rarely is the puck in our end and when it is, it is not there very long.
