Oh I agree that our forwards like to watch for quick counters and as such, rarely engage hard enough to win back possession, leaving the bulk of the work to our d-men... it's just that I don't see these "stats" tracked often enough in my feed and when I do, I'll share the actual numbers rather than listen to perceived conceptions about their play... I also wanted to clear up that I may have cited the only real mistake Brennan made in the game (outside of missing the net twice), so that no one piles on him or interprets it as a poor game... but I think we can all agree that Leopold is an utter mess.
