Final Eight by age
Another breakdown of the teams that made the second round this season (even though three, and soon perhaps, four, are already eliminated):
Ages are as of Sunday, with only players who have played at least one playoff game counting in the averages.
Montreal's goaltenders were, obviously, the youngest of the bunch, with the majority of the successful netminders in their 30s. Detroit's pretty much old all around, although especially so on defence and in goal, while the Rangers employed the greenest defence.
The Western Conference is also quite a bit older than the East, for whatever reason.
Looking at the figures, it'll be interesting to see how Marc-Andre Fleury fares in Round 3.
