The fourth line of the Columbus Blue Jackets is currently better than most teams' second line.

The Blue Jackets are so deep that the fourth line of Sam Gagner, Scott Hartnell and Lukas Sedlak are scoring at a tremendous pace and Gagner and Hartnell are seeing plenty of ice time on the power play. Gagner has 14 goals and 28 points, while Hartnell has nine goals and 22 points. Both are plus-11 while Sedlak has three goals and nine points with a plus-eight rating. That is quite a line as only 140 players in the NHL have 20 points. less on average than five per team.
