Only players they ever got who fit that bill that I remember are Corson, Lemiuex, LeClair(prematurely traded), McPhee.

They have had other big forwards as well like a Stevenson but that was a wasted first round pick if you consider his talent level. If you get a Stevenson in the 4th round then it's a good pick for bottom 6 tough wingers.
