The power forward is a rare species in today's NHL. With the game evolving into one of speed and skill, the physically gifted as well as physically imposing offensive threats are tough to find.
However, these types of players do still exist, just in a somewhat modified form. So, what exactly qualifies a player as a power forward these days?
In my eyes, power forwards do it all, they score, they hit, and they fight. A power forward plays as well on defense as he does on offense, and is among the best competitors on the team.
The NHL may not have the Cam Neely type power forwards of the old days, but the guys on this list represent what is left of the rare breed.
