Just totally different players and different issues.
That's fair, but then why are some people all of a sudden jumping on Zherdev because he turned the puck over a few times? He definitely controls the puck a ton, and only scored 10 less points on an inferior team last year. I will start worrying when his turnovers lead to goals, and hopefully that won't happen

(By the way, I'm comparing Jagr of last year to Zherdev. Obviously Jagr in his prime was a completely different player)
