IT'S NOT THE BLUELINERS.

Turnovers have always existed.

Turnovers will always exist.

The goaltenders have to make saves, and the forwards need to stop putting added pressure on the defensemen by not knowing their defensive assignments/responsibilities.

This defense has been playing together for years. Watch the games a little more thoroughly and you can see that a lot of the problems with defensive positioning and turnovers comes from rookie mistakes by young/new forwards in Laviolette's system.

That and Bryzgalov is flat out atrocious in half of his games.
