Plus-minus rating is one way to gauge an NHL player's success while he is on the ice. 

The statistic can be a little confusing, however. So here's a quick synopsis by Jamie Fitzpatrick of About.com

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 mean that a guy is a good defensive player. 

 So, which five Washington Capitals will have the best plus-minus stats in 2013-14? 

Let's have a look.
