I think this year has given us a slight glimpse at a number of strong power forwards that are coming up for the US. Some havent played that many games to showcase their skill one way or another, but I think the promise is there for many of these kids. The term power forward is something that isnt easily defined nowadays, but for the sake of argument, I am going by a player that plays tough, has size, and can score some goals. pretty simple. Here is a list of future power forward prospects that I could see as being legitimate NHLers very soon if not already.. Please rank them on highest upside to lowest. Thanks Ryan Stoa - 6'3 200 - Colorado Avalanche Nick Palmieri - 6'2 215 - New Jersey Devils Max Pacioretty - 6'1 205 - Montreal Canadiens Eric Tangradi - 6'4 221 - Pittsburg Penguins Patrick Maroon - 6'4 225 - Anaheim Ducks Tom Sestito - 6'5 228 - Columbus Blue Jackets Blake Geoffrion - 6'2 195 - Nashville Predators Jim O'brien - 6'2 200 - Ottawa Senators this is a pretty solid group of young up and coming power forwards, could this group turn into being the next Tkachuk, Leclair, Deadmarsh, and Guerin???
