Nope. Iginla and Langkow played together for a tournament back in the day. I am unsure which one but I also remember reading something along those lines as well.

He MAY score 20 on a consistent basis but i would be suprised if hits 30 even once let alone be one of the premier wingers in the league.
I agree. Unless some NHl rules are changed to make room for more offense, which there is a good chance to happen.

I would venture to guess he's confusing him with Tucker.

In that case I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Kobasew will be a solid NHLer.. he has everything necessary to be succesful in the NHL.. good size, excellent skater.. very good hands... good defensive game.. good offensive vision.. can pass and shoot... tough checker.. great attitude.. leads by example

all he needs is some confidence and he got that in the AHL this year.. now all he has to do is translate that to the NHL

Nope. It wasn't on an actual season team. it was some sort of tourny.

Correction... Kobasew is already a solid NHLer. He just has to refine his offensive game. His intengibles are already as much as you can expect from any 23 (?) year old.

I found it! Iginla DID play with Langkow, I knew I wasn't going crazy. This is from the Flames website, some article.

"The pair played against each other extensively in the Western Hockey League and then played on the same line at the 1996 World Junior Championships in Boston, where they helped Canada to win gold. Iginla led all forwards with 12 points while Langkow had three goals and three assists in five games."

- #1 in the AHL for +/- at +33.
- #1 in AHL for GWG at 10 goals.
- In the 10 top in AHL for total points.

Could be interested to see how he plays next season in the NHL. I think a year off from the NHL was just what he needed to help his development.

Thoughts?
Well, I have him in my keeper league, so I hope he continues to do well!
