Yes, he hustles when he turns the puck over. It doesn't negate the mistakes he makes by leaving others open in good offensive, but poor defensive positions due to an ill advised "dangle". It doesn't change the fact that he is often caught running out of position for a loose puck either leaving his men open.

When you overhandle the puck you bring players around you to a stand-still or force them to find a new position to get open. His turn-overs are usually off him overhandling the puck, which means the rest of the team has to transition.

Enlightened?
The lost face off is a reach. I could have stopped that shot from the point. This is where your too critical regarding Cliff guys, watch the highlights, on the 2nd goal Stajan was standing covering no one. P.S. The 2nd goal should have been stopped as well.
