Actually it is. You're ignoring Hiller's entire body of work last year to say he's only going to be as good as he's been this year while saying Fasth will continue to play like he has while ignoring the fact that shooters will start to learn his tendencies and take advantage of them. Hiller in January and February last year was every bit as good as Fasth has been (in back of an inferior defense to boot) and the numbers support that. What Fasth did in Europe is irrelevant - it's a different game with different angles and inferior shooters.

Fasth has been great. But it's way too early to declare him better than Hiller.
