I don't think being a power forward is necessarily about intimidation and brute force though. A lot of people call James van Riemsdyk one, but he's closer to Pacioretty than say, Luicic. Even John LeClair was also a scorer first.
Yup, I don't disagree with anything you've said. I'll say that I didn't consider LeClair a power forward either, though.
