not sure what it means - i mean there are ok giveaways when trying to make a play and then there's passing to an attacker in the slot
Actually I think it is pretty compelling statistic. I've seen a lot of Keith this year and he has been awful. So has Myers and we all know how up and down MDZ has been. The only guy I can't comment on is Carlson because I've only seen Washington play once this year.
You have to have control of the puck to be charged with a giveaway. When Sauer first came up Torts' was quoted as saying he doesn't pass his **** off to other guys. He didn't stick then but I don't think you can get him out of the lineup with a crowbar now. He's the epitome of a simple game.
I just wish they would give him a big league uniform number. 38 is for the PA PArenteau's of the world.
