    Hi,

    is there any power forwards (my definition of power forward is a big player with offensive upside, who uses his body and plays with a mean streak) in the upcoming draft? I´m aware of Gillies but I think there are question marks regarding his offensive upside.

    Thanx

    Perhaps Jim O'Brien. Power forwards are a rare breed prospects like Okposo dont come along that often.

    Not a first round guy, but Dwight King with the Hurricanes is a power forward to a tee.

    Brad Malone, not sure if he is still plays with cushing acadamy, but he is probably not a first round talent, but is a good power forward.

    Ditto-ly, I've been mildly impressed with Nick Palmieri in Erie this year. Maybe not "to a tee", but at least in the ever-expanding pf ballpark.

    Currently plays for Sioux Falls in the USHL. Like you say, probably not a first round talent, but if he continues putting up points like he's been doing recently, he could be a very solid 2nd rounder.
