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.

Okay, I have come to the conclusion that we are simply somehow not watching the same hockey player. There is literally not a single bit of this assessment of Tyutin that I can agree with or even find reasonably accurate. It reads to me like an assessment of Nash that talks about his complete inability to get past defensemen or score goals.

Remember - when you're a hockey fan, it's not "reckless driving", it's "good forechecking".
