Well, I can probably go back and check the D stats, but there were plenty of turnovers in the 1st 3 games as well. They may be all individually more talented than last year, but we have moved some guys, changed the pairings, brought new guys in that are still learning the system, etc.
The bad pass by Letang to Martin that gave up the shortie comes to mind.
There's plenty of bad play going on out there for everyone to step up and play better.
It's still early. We have a long road to travel. Hopefully, things improve.
