Trouba played 31 minutes on Saturday. Buff played 27. I'd like to see Trouba with Morrissey for a bit with #nhljets.— gary lawless (@garylawless) January 16, 2017
In addition to my normal, long-form analysis with Behind the Numbers, we will be adding a new series to Jets Nation called Quick Numbers. In these posts I'll just be putting up some quick numbers and/or graphics related to Jet-centric topics.
Gary Lawless of TSN raised some points about switching up the top four alignment for the Winnipeg Jets, and frankly I agree. Here is a quick demonstration why.

Apologies for the slightly clickbait-type title. I will not be making the Winnipeg Jets goaltending woes disappear. However, I will be taking an in-depth look at the Jets and their netminding. I will weigh the options and then make suggestions on what the Jets could do with some pros and cons to each option.
Let's get into it.

While the Winnipeg Jets have not been strong overall as a team, there have been pockets of good performance within the team.
The team's slow turn back into good health (still a long ways to go though) has brought together three giants on a very good line: Shawn Matthias, Adam Lowry, and Joel Armia.

Winnipeg Jet goaltender Connor Hellebuyck has his ups and downs, but with 54 games under his belt Connor Hellebuyck has stopped 91.3 percent of shots, or 92.9 when looking exclusively for 5v5 situations.
Despite some recent struggles and public outcry, Hellebuyck has been better than what Winnipeg has experienced yet.

The Winnipeg Jets are currently the lowest shot event team in the league for 5v5 situations. That means per minute of ice time, the sum of the Jets and their opponents shots are lower than any other team.
The Jets' goaltending struggled early on and injuries began to pile up, so I can understand the theory behind it. However, here is why this is a bad plan and not using the Jets to the best of their abilities.
