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.
Yeah, I am not relying Google to define a power forward... A power forward to me is a player that plays physical hockey, and uses his body to create plays, create momentum (again: does NOT need to be a fight), and does so on a regular basis.
Again, how can you exclude every single player from my previous list as A) a power forward, and B) a better player than Lucic? I understand you like Lucic and all, but it is certainly not a knock on him to say that Ryan Getzlaf, or Jamie Benn are far superior players/power forwards...
