    Who do you guys think is the most physical Forward that will be taken in the 1st Round of the 2007 NHL Draft?

    I'm looking for someone who you can see getting 100 PIMs in the NHL (someone who is physical and can fight at times).


    Thanks!

    there arnt any. JVR has the size but doesnt use it enough, same could be said of Veilleux and even Sutter.

    Andersson is big, strong, but not a great hitter.

    Colton Gillies is the most physical forward, good forechecker.

    He is a awesome skater with a huge frame.

    Still possible for Aliu...even with all his shortcomings to go in the first round. I could see a team gambling on him late in the first round.

    Dana Tyrell might be a little undersized, but it looks like he could be a Brendan Morrow / Darcy Tucker type.

    Stefan Legein, though the first round may be a bit early for him.

    Unfortunately, he is also an accident waiting to happen. He is very prone to checking from behind penalties and a lot of his hits are at best borderline.

    Id say Tyrell, Gillies, and Sonne if someone really wants him that bad.

    This guy is very intriguing. Born in Nigeria, then moved to Ukraine, then moved to Canada.

    Does anyone know where his parents are from? Meaning is he biracial?


    Also, between Gillies and Aliu, who do you guys think has more talent? Who will produce more points in the NHL (when both reach full potential)?

    Akim Aliu IMO has a far greater upside. Havent seen much of Gillies, but he sure sounds like Chad Kilger.

    he is big and strong yes. but he doesnt use he's size advantage at all. he is going to dominate the day he understands he is bigger and stronger then most players.

    Donnie Hallmark is the biggest joke in the USHL. No skill, no upside.
