And that's going to happen with a playmaker, especially with linemates who aren't really finishers.

Make no mistake, his linemates by him room but they dont back people up.

You're gonna have turnovers but having guys like poti defending your goal is probably the bigger problem.

When the goalie can't stop a beach ball and the guy in front of him looks like he is trying to politely ask people to clear the crease, that is going to happen.

You also have to ask yourself, how many of those turnovers were the result of Messier trying desperatly to get something going because they guys who were SUPPOSED to be doing that on the top two lines, weren't.
