Byfield’s plus minus is now -10, tied with Clague and Brickly... Dudas is -14 . So I assume those hammering Byfield’s plus minus also think Clague isn’t up to the NHL either . In all seriousness there needs to be some recognition that Byfield has improved his defensive gave, whilst also getting going offensively. His plus minus is now improving whilst most of his teammates’ are continuing to get worse... that’s important context when looking at that stat. After just 24 AHL games he figured out how to translate his skill set offensively and has improved his defensive game. There’s been a significant evolution of his game yet we are still hearing he has IQ issues... give me a break. His time in the AHL has proven to be incredibly valuable and seeing how his game is evolving just shows how smart and coachable he is. I hadn’t seen an AHL game for a couple of weeks but I could see the continued evolution yesterday. Also worth noting Kalyev is +1 which is really interesting considering how poor he is defensively.
