In the 80's if you stood in from of the net and took the shots to get the goals you were power. It was not till later when LeClair and Co changed the role. Go back to the old Hockey News ( And I have almost evey issue since the 50's) and see when they starting talking power forwards. Because before that people like O'Rilley were just tough scores. And I am just picking about Lindros. Cheers
