WHL playing experience

I was doing some calculations (see last 2 posts) and decided to go and look at the playing experience and came up with some numbers....

Total goalie gp: 20
Total defencemen gp: 580
Total forwards gp: 1388
Total whl experience: 1988

Average goalie gp: 10.00
Average defencemen gp: 64.44
Average forwards gp: 92.53
Average whl experience: 76.46

NOW.... with the Pats 4 campers the numbers change completely, especially on d.

Total goalie gp: 20
Total defencemen gp: 188
Total forwards gp: 1056
Total whl experience: 1264

Average goalie gp: 10.00
Average defencemen gp: 26.86
Average forwards gp: 81.23
Average whl experience: 48.62

With Teubert and Delahey gone to camp.... that's 392 games right there..... leaving 188 TOTAL games on defence. Alex Pym has 103 of them..... leaving 85 or 14.17 games of experience per player. Methinks the Pats may just need a hand with a vet on d.

And also if you look at the goaltending situation Ketlo and Guhle have a combined 20 games (all 20 by Ketlo).... am I concerned about lack of experience? Not yet, but itshould make for an interesting start to the season.
