Our fourth line is constructed to be able to do different things if we put nieto vs brown down there

I don't know...standings is important too. How are we doing relative to other teams. 3 games in hand and 2 points out of 1st? Looks good.
We can compare whatever we want in this thread, but the title is "Why this year's hot start isn't like last year's" clearly talking about the two teams that started each season. There are plenty of posts pointing to the stats of each start including the points AND goals being more spread out this year. I'm not discounting those, just adding to them.

As to your last paragraph, we're on pace for 123 points as are a few other teams. That's crazy yo!
