A look at the age and wisdom of the Caps vs. the wide-eyed youth of the Leafs

NHL: Washington Capitals at Toronto Maple Leafs John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports

25.39 - The average age of the projected playoff roster for the Toronto Maple Leafs, compared to an average age of 27.78 for the Capitals. The Leafs have 12 players under the age of 25, compared to seven for the Caps.
