It's one thing to be good, it's another entirely to be good and young.
I wrote an article in the Winnipeg Free Press last Saturday, saying that underlying metrics say good things about the 2014-15 Winnipeg Jets. The Jets' strong numbers --such as in score adjusted Corsi percentage (SAC%)-- are a positive sign. While points and wins show where a team stands at a single moment, shot metrics are important because they better predict how a team will perform for the remainder of the season.
There are seven teams in the NHL who currently hold a better SAC% than the Winnipeg Jets. The real kicker though is only the Tampa Bay Lightning consist of a younger average roster.
The Jets' youth has not just been passengers, but have driven a lot of the success as well. In this series we will look at the Jets depth in each position, while specifically focusing on those under 25 and making a NHL impact. Today we turn to those roaming the blue line.

Things ended without our winners getting the day in the sun that they're pale blotchy skin so desperately deserves. With that, I present the winners of the NationDrafts pool.
