And about "brain cramps":

A D-man who makes turnovers is more valuable to your team than a guy who never does. A guy who makes turnovers handles the puck and is attempting to pass it; a guy who isn't is probably just clearing it by knocking it off the boards, which basically hands it to the other team, or worse, he never handles the puck.

Passers and players who handle the puck a lot make turnovers. It comes with the territory; nobody's perfect and the more you handle the puck the more you'll give it away. The last two full seasons he's played, Markov was top-5 in the whole league in giveways, keeping company with Joe Thornton.
