Average Age of Playoff Rosters

Below is the average age of playoff rosters through May 18th.

Same data with a slight different view, age distribution using a Box and whisker plot. (Box and whisker plots are a graphic way to display the median, quartiles, and extremes of a data set on a number line to show the distribution of the data.)

The average age and distribution can be a bit misleading when evaluating long term outlook for the team. What I really want to see is the age of those contributing. I went ahead and created a weighted average of age based on goals scored in the playoffs.
