Not sure tied for 95th among other D-Men in the NHL would classify 10 as a huge number. Considering Duncan Keith has 32. Also consider that 14 takeaways would be tied for 11th in the NHL.

10 giveaways would rank you about the same with forwards and defensemen.

I still don't get this Tyutin turnover machine mentality. Oh well.
I don't either. When you look at the NHL as a whole, the CBJ are actually a pretty low turnover team.

The defenseman with the most turnovers in the nhl right now though is Duncan Keith, with 32 giveaways. In fact Tyutin isn't in the top 50.

I attached the top 60 or so in the NHL...some pretty big names in there


The moral of this is, you can't make high reward plays without high risk. You are going to turn the puck over, it is a fact of life. You just want to minimize it. All of our defensemen, when compared to the rest of the league, do a pretty fine job.
