He's simply not scoring and that needs to change.

That being said, he's doing all the right things out there being a 200-foot player. That's why we're getting by. But if we want consistent wins, Iggy needs to score. End of the story.
Watch him play now and compare it to 6-7 years ago, he had much more explosive power he wouldn't stop and look for the pass he would drive hard to the net. He may still be in great shape but he certainly doesn't look like the same guy that knew he could go threw anyone. I also think Hartley has asked him to play this way, our top 2 lines are full of players making quick passes and smart plays and since Hartley has been Iginla looks alot more like a playmaker, he looks to be actively looking for open players instead of just taking the shot.
