Top 30 - Power Forwards - #16, 17 & 18

Who are the 30 best power forwards in the NHL?

PLEASE VOTE FOR 3 PLAYERS

By "power forwards", we mean a forward who's able to :

- Produce offensively, especially in the goal department
- Hit very hard
- Fight
- He's usually tall and big

Optionally, he can also :

- Be a PP specialist
- Show leadership
- Show some poise and emotion
- Be good at hiding the goalie's view and scoring "garbage goals"
- Be reliable defensively

We often see "power forwards" as slow skaters. But remember that it's NOT a criteria : They don't have to be slow to be considered as power forwards.

It's not just about points total... It's more about the total package.

Please vote and say who you would like to add to the poll.

1- Jarome Iginla
2- Alex Ovechkin
3- Vincent Lecavalier
4- Joe Thornton
5- Brendan Morrow
6- Rick Nash
7- Ryan Getzlaf
8- Dustin Brown
9- Shane Doan
10- Erik Cole
11- Nathan Horton
12- Corey Perry
13- Mike Fisher
14- Johan Franzen

I'm not sure about Zubrus. I don't know if he changed his style much from when he was with Montreal, but he was definitely not a PF at this time. And now when I'm looking at his stats, it's not convincing at all. He doesn't hit, he doesn't fight, he doesn't take penalties and he's very average offensively. Being big and tall is just not enough.

This year was a very tough year for him. Sutter put him on the 3rd and 4th lines alot, and when he was put in a top 6 role he was pretty damn good. The constant line juggling had alot to do with his production, or lack there of.

No one on the Devils offense (besides Parise) lived up to expectations last year. So i wouldnt really look at stats. When you play with Rupp and Clarkson your not going to get alot of them. Getting to 32 points is a very good deal on the 3rd/4th line, especially with those two.

If you ask any Ranger or Devil fans, they will say he was an absolute beast in the playoffs. He showed alot of heart, and was always in the corners.

Now that we have Holik, i expect alot more of Zubrus. This gives him a chance to shine in a more offensive role with the team. He will be playing with much better linemates, so look for a much improved Dainius this year.
