Missed Shots 88 (This is horrendous)
Giveaways 73(Horrible as well, Gardiner has 72 which is not good either)
Shooting percentage 5.2%

Just watching the games you can see Dion handles the puck way too much and plays way too many minutes.
the most misunderstood stat in hockey and just as ridiculous as the +/- stat in measuring a players worth

If a player clears a puck out of the zone to relieve pressure and an opposing player chases it down it results in a T/O and the player who chases it down gets a T/A

Dmen who play lots of minutes are generally going to have high T/O #'s, while we all want to see the completed pass getting out of the zone sometimes the open man just isn't there or there's no lane
