I mean Keith made almost 3 times more turnovers than Tyutin.
While that is a surprising stat, Duncan Keith had a horrible year. He also handles the puck at least 3 times as often as Tyutin. Also, my dislike of Tyutin is only slightly due to his awful turnovers, its mostly his inability to make basic reads in the defensive zone. His coverage is terrible, he is almost perpetually out of position. I can't tell if its that he simply doesn't know what he's doing, or if he just can't skate well enough to efficiently get to where he needs to be, but I don't think I have ever seen any full time defensemen at any level get beat as consistently as Fedor does.
