Bill Guerin

Keep in mind, this is just what "I" picture. A lot of people say Lindros and an in-his-prime Messier were power forwards. I never thought of a center as a power forward.
Lindros pre-concussions was the ultimate power-forward the bestthe game has ever seen.

Also IMO LeClair isn't a true "power forward", he was more along the lines of a Tim Kerr or a Dave Andreychuk. Players that used their size to dominate the area in front of the net. None of those three though were ever very aggressive at delivering big hits to defenseman ... and would never drop the gloves.

Tkachuk is much more of a "power forward" than LeClair.
