I don't think it is a problem but I would like to see him play with another shooter like Cammy as many people still believe he is that power forward and it would give Cammy a lot of free space.

I am probably one of the biggest Iginla defenders and I think it is that I simply don't expect what I did 5-10 years ago, you can see his game is changing and I respect him for trying to find a way to stay effective as he has recognized that he isn't able to play the same way anymore.
Yup, he looks a lot different to me than he did four years ago, or even the last couple. He went from an absolutely dominant power forward to sort of a perimeter sniper, and I think he's currently working out a way to be more effective in an overall sense. A lot more passing, and he's doing more work in the crease area than I can remember in quite some time.
