    Anyone have ideas on who could become good power forwards out of the upcoming draft? I've read in a couple places that Malkin could become one.

    While Ladd does have power forward potential, and tons of it, I haven't seen him dominate physically as much as I'd like too, especially down low along the end boards.

    I know, that's why I said that the list continues. Here's other names if you prefer: Andrew Ladd, Kyle Chipchura, Bryan Bickell?, David Bolland?, Adam Berti, Kevin Mailhiot, Vaclav Meidl, Roman Voloshenko

    Bolland has the attitude of a power forward. He plays bigger than he is. And Tukonen is more of a offensive player than a power forward, bu he can play physical.

    P.S. The "?" beside players' names means I'm not sure if they're Power Forwards.

    Playing physical is part of the game. It doesn't make them powerforwards.

    I agree. Playing physical is part of the job resume. I absolutely hate how people on this board call anyone and everyone a powerforward. Sorry to dissapoint you, but David Bolland is not a powerforward. You have no argument because he simply is not one, no question. Stop throwing that term around so loosely. There are not many true power forwards.

    That's like calling Marc Savard a power forward because he isn't afraid of the physical game, and he has a chippy attitude.

    Who are you, his mother? :D Kidding... I agree, playing physical doesn't mean you're automaticaly a Power forward, but Bolland is maybe not one, but he battles in front of the net and he gives great body checks and he likes to take the body usually, so I think he's not so far of being a Power forward.

    Bolland

    33 goals playing on a checking line, plays physical round the net, natural goal scorer, sniper, work hard round the boards, great playmaker the only thing he is not is 6'4".

    I have knowen this kid since minor atom, has always been a 50 goal scorer every season, would have hit 50 this year if played on one of the two top lines and had regular powerplay time, but you know the politics in London.

    Yeah! What's sure is that Bollland is a natural goal scorer, no doubt about it!
