This. Fast may be the hottest player in the SEL since he recovered from his injury.

Also, Lindberg's production has come out of nowhere in his year 21 season, whereas Fast has displayed offense all along. Don't get me wrong, I really like Lindberg - his defense and faceoffs have always made him appealing as a potential 3rd line guy and if it turns out that he's either taken a step forward late in his development and/or it was the same old story of a young guy getting put on a lower line and told to just focus on defense that kept him from showing hidden offensive talent before - hey, even freakin' better.
