To be fair, he's either on, or he's not. Sort of like Zherdev.
When he's on, he's on in a way where you don't even notice him. He just keeps making good play after good play (usually early in the season toward mid-season).
When he's off, boy do you notice him. You name it, he does it badly. That "hipcheck" is over-rated. He uses it maybe 10 times a season (or successfully anyway). His physical game is good but again, it's over-rated. Everything refers to the hip-check which TBH is kind of hard to throw - have you tried in hockey?
Regardless, the point is I think you guys really lost this trade. I'm not trying to be an ass. Tyutin has little to no offensive flair and is as inconsistent as can be at times. The money's fine for now, and if he stays around it. Hopefully he stays consistent for you guys because that is key. Same thing for us with Zherdev....
