I'll cut Leino some slack because he was nursing a hip injury at some point recently, but you are spot on re: turnovers.
You have to take what they give you, and if they stand up 5 across the blue line, you can't carry it in - you have to have a plan to dump it in and get it back.
Then, when they start turning to cheat on the dump ins, you can carry it once in a while and surprise'em. Read and react.
