I tend to agree with most of what you said. I'm not even sure what they use for criteria. What it does illustrate, however, is that Tyutin is not an abnormally high turnover machine in the NHL.
Most stats are flawed, such as assists. And to a certain extent even FO%. So I tend to not get too worked up over it. Goals, shots, and PROD tend to get my attention.
