Recently, we at Jets Nation looked at the performance of the Winnipeg Jets' roster in terms of Goals Above Replacement.
The statistic estimates the impact a player had on the team's goal differential relative to that of a replacement level player. We can then take this one step further, using the average goal differential to win differential translation for teams to then create an estimate for Wins Above Replacement.
Let's take a look at the Jets.

It was an early exit from the playoffs for the Winnipeg Jets and this week we're learning a big reason why.
Four of the team's stars, including blue-liner Dustin Byfuglien and captain Andrew Ladd, were dealing with significant injuries during their opening round sweep at the hands of the Anaheim Ducks.
On Tuesday the Jets announced defencemen Tobias Enstrom and Adam Pardy had shoulder surgery in Winnipeg and both are expected to be ready for training camp in September.

The season is done and now begins a time of reflection. Fans discuss to each other who they hope the Jets move or keep while management actually debates those very decisions.
Recently the good people at WAR-on-Ice have been developing a new stat called Goals Above Replacement. The statistic combines multiple factors like penalty differentials, shot differentials, face offs, and scoring to create a measured value of a player's season.
The statistic is still in development. There will be changes in the future and other factors added in. But, it is still neat to look at what it says for now.
Let's use this statistic to look at how the Jets' performed.
