Kobasew is coming along just fine actually. He proved he could play at the NHL level last season, looked like he just needed some offensive confidence. He improved as the year went along and stepped up his game in the playoffs. He's scored at every level he's played at except during the NHL regular season. He's scored in bunches in exhibition at age 19/20.

Anyways, Kobasew is tied for 4th right now in goals in the AHL. He's also in the top 15 in terms of points. He's co-captaining Lowell as well. Looks like he's regained his offensive confidence and has learned to be a go-to guy. I think if he were in the Canadiens system you wouldn't be very worried about him not turning out. He's a pretty safe bet at this point to develop into a 2nd line winger (barring a freak injury.) I'd put money on it in fact.
