Tbf on Luke... his passing is not bad at all...

Overall turnovers per minute among top 6 since 2012-13 start.

Kimmo 40 in 1844 (1 every 46.06~)
Streit 17 in 689 (1 every 40.31~)
Schenn 43 in 1646 (1 every 38.26~)
Grossmann 41 in 1334 (1 every 32.32~)
Gus 28 in 883 (1 every 31.32~)
Coburn 57 in 1686 (1 every 29.35~)

This year he is actually the least turnover prone Flyer.

I know that is a lot to do with role... but I have never seen much bad about his passing. His footspeed and common sense are the two things that usually get him into trouble.

He has been playing pretty damn ****** overall this year... but he has shown in 3 of his 5 1/2 NHL seasons he can be a pretty good top 4 D man who can eat ~22 mins a night and be a great PKer and match up vs the oppositions best while getting 20-25 points. The other 2 and a half he has been ~ a 5# who plays ~17 mins. If he can be consistently the guy he was last year and his 1st and 3rd in TO, he is a good top 4 D man... he just needs to find that consistency.

Maybe he does not, but he has shown, in the NHL on two teams he can do it. But the inconsistency is infuriating. He also needs a puckmoving, good skater with him to do bring that out of him.
