I recall several games where JvR, Carter, and Zherdev were absolutely untouchable in the offensive zone with speed, size, and danglitis. Now that it's been brought up, I'm sure Giroux got plenty of shifts in there too.
Briere plays best with a player that knows how to protect the puck..he then jumps into the holes. Also good behind the net. Leino was good at protecting the puck his first year...then he committed more turnovers later. Prospal was also good at protecting the puck and setting up.

G is a set up type but Jagr complemented G pretty well b/c of his puck protecting skills.
