3.) Work ethic
re-emergence of Langkow? last season he was only 2 goals and 3 points under his career highs... he was just extremely undervalued by Flames fans... if anything I think Langkow has assumed a new leadership role... it was nice to see him rewarded with his hard play with teh "A" on friday night with Regehr's absence

You have a point, but he has performed extremely well in consecutive seasons after having an average season in 2003/04. He is back to 2001-2003 form when he was accumulating points but was also very good in his own end.

It could have been that certain players were holding back with Iginla in the lineup. When he comes back, and there's a drop-off in effort by some, that will quickly expose who wasn't always giving 100%. If all things remain the same when he returns, then the team is that much more improved.

Don't underestimate the loss of Lundmark! We've lost our designated punching bag, but we've also lost our designated penalty server.
