Yeah, I kinda see both sides here. I mean, your "typical" power forward has a tremendous impact on forechecking, which could be seen as simply advanced zone defense. It'd be fair to say that someone's excellence in that area would "compensate" "overall" for any minor blemishes there might be in the actual defensive zone. Bringing it back around to case in point, I would consider Neely AND Messier, for examples,
fore-checkers, and even I'll admit that Neely wasn't a slouch on the back-check.
