You may say that they are meaningless. Meanwhile, we watch as the Habs D struggles to get the puck out of our zone.

Would you disagree with that assessment that we struggle in our own zone?

Too often, and last night was a very good example, we see our D pitchfork the puck out of our zone only to give up possession to the Bolts who quickly transitioned and entered our zone easily.

And then think how easily the Bolts moved the puck out of their zone last night and maintained possession.

Giveaways are an important stat that relates to possession. And ours are pretty ugly.
