Power forwards come in lots of different types. Ovechkin is a power forward, but he is not a net front player. A sniper in a power forward body with a willingness to hit and compete for pucks.
Really the definition should just be a forward who has the size and strength that he usually can out muscle a defender. And kreider certainly has that ability, though he is not consistent yet
