While Methot has been a very pleasant surprise and Hejda, dispite an occasional hiccup, has been his usual steady self, Tyutin has just not played up to my (and, I believe, most of our) expectations.
I can accept that you see it differently, but that's my view.
Tyutin has stepped back in time now. He is playing like he did in NY. He has been more physical, and is gaining confidence with every game.
I don't understand how you people sit here and crucify Tyutin, when every other defender makes just as many mistakes.
Stats speak. Tyutin does have the most giveaways with 10 (Hejda has 6, next closest). Tyutin also has 14 Takeaways (Klesa at 9, next closest). So while he may give up the puck, he gets it back.
