What top six forwards do you find will continually sacrifice themselves for the win? How many of the top six forwards don't disappear most of the time when hit or face tough checking?

The sad thing is Max Lapierre could probably meet Pleks production on the top line. The question is who would you consider bumping? Pleks production is easily replaceable. The other question is are you replacing Plekanec as top 2 line center or as a shut down third line center. I would say Koivu, Lang and Lapierre are all above Pleks.
Remember Datsyuk pre-2008
