The Next Bert Olmstead?

Dirty Bertie was one of the best power forwards in the game. I am wondering who in today's NHL has a similar game to his? I was thinking Joe Thornton or Vincent Lecavalier. Any thoughts?

Bert Olmstead was a LW, best known for going into the corners and winning the puck by whatever means necessary, then feeding it to his more talented linemates.

Wayne Cashman was the next Bert Olmstead.

I'm not seeing the Lecavalier/Thornton comparison.

Neither Lecavalier nor Thornton have the mean streak that Olmstead did. Or the enormous will to win.

Cashman did but wasn't as talented or self-controlled away from the ice.
