Go onto Google's search engine, and search the definition of a "power-forward" in hockey. The majority of the websites will mention that the willingness to drop the gloves is a key characteristic of a power-forward. Too many users on HFboards assume that a talented and physical forward that plays first/second-line minutes is considered a "power-forward" (however, the forward is not willing to drop the gloves). How can I take your list of "power-forwards" seriously when you considered Eric Staal and James Neal as power-forwards.

These are players that I would consider as power-forwards in today's game:

Milan Lucic, Ryane Clowe, (potential) Marcus Foligno, (potential) Zack Kassian, and Jarome Iginla.
