    Carter is first, Fehr is probably last. Fehr is physical in that he uses his size to his advantage to protect/reach the puck, but you won't see him lay any great hits.

    Ladd is pretty tough, all of those guys arent the creme of the crop when it comes to toughness though.

    The only one Ive seen consistently is Vanek. He'll sometimes go into traffic and take a lot of chippy penalties. IF he gets frustrated he can get dirty. Not really physical though.

    i thought he was being billed as some kind of great powerforward (I haven't seen him play)

    I second this list. Perry can be a bit feisty at times, so depending on what games you see Carter/Perry/Fehr could be interchangeable at the bottom. Getzlaf and Ladd could be interchangeable at the top. Picard is #3. Vanek... I'll accept what you say, since I haven't seen enough of him to have a clue.

    No, he's not a power forward at all. His game is about speed and skill. His best attributes are proabably his skating and his wrist shot, both are elite.

    That looks about right.

    Ladd always seems to lead with his butt... which looks kinda funny when you are not a Dman... but at least he is willing.

    When Getzlaf get's nasty I have seen him put some guys under.(Shudder). He takes hit's well too (just not Phaneuf blows to the head).

    I've never seen Vanek or Picard but have seen all the others play and I would slot them in fairly closely except to possibly put Ladd at #1 and Getzlaf at #2. Ladd is a bruiser and and loves the physical game. It seems fun for him. Getzlaf is physical because he has a huge attitude on the ice, he plays with a huge chip on his shoulder.

    From what I've seen Perry and Fehr are far from physical at all.

    I'll be surprised if he does... it's never been a part of his game. In juniors, he was the same size or bigger than the rest of the league and wasn't a physical player. As someone said earlier, his skill lies in his speed, his shot, and his smarts.

    Only speaking on Getzlaf and Ladd, Ladd is definitely the more physical of the two. Getzlaf only gets physical if someone gets under his skin and irritates him.

    I agree with you. While both are physical players, Getzlaf tends to be... moody, for lack of a better word. Overall, I'd say that Ladd is more physical based on consistency.
     
  21. where is Ryan Kesler? That guy crushes opositions into the boards like no tommorow.

    No Dustin Brown? This list does suck! Correy Perry should not be on this list.

    Okay guys. He only wants those guys ranked. It's not neccessarily a list of hard hitting prospects. ;)

    He's a powerforward in the way that Ottawa fans call Hossa a powerforward and Toronto fans call Sundin a powerforward.

    He's big, strong on his skates and hard to knock off balance when he's skating, but he's definately not going to lay anyone out. IMO, his game is, in fact, very comparable to Sundin's.

    More Modano than Sundin. Sundin can and does lay some pretty nasty hits.
