AD, I was thinking last nigfht after the game that the hockey term, power forward, just a stolen basketball term, started being used to decsribe Cam Neely when his game emerged in Boston. I think that's the case. Then, as these things go, everyone had to have a pf, whether it be Tkazcuk or whoever. A lot of guys gotr drated to high then given up on him because they weren't what scouts dreamed they were going to be, Isbister,Kilger etc.

Andrei Kostitsyn does what you want a power forward to do, he can turn the corner with a powerful stride, d men have to back up and get support, he uses his strength, he's more sneaky dirty than he is a wrecking ball, but he has that arrogance about him, where he looks like he's going where he wants to, similar to Kovalev.

So, yeah, he plays that role, though we tend to picture different player types when we use that term.
By different you mean non-european.. I see how it is.

I see many people that still have difficulty calling Ovechkin a power forward..
