In today's NHL, if you are a forward and you are big = powerforward. Stupid.
Agreed. Taking abuse around the net does not make you a powerforward. Otherwise we'd have two on our hands with Marleau and Pavelski.

A true powerforward drives the net no matter who's in the way. Wins board battles easily. Makes smart big hits. Plays with an edge. But really it's driving the net that define a power forward for me, and neither Coyle nor Clowe are that.
