Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,
"A forward who is big and strong, equally capable of playing physically or scoring goals and would most likely have high totals in both points and penalties. It is usually used in reference to a forward who is physically large, with the toughness to dig the puck out of the corners, possesses offensive instincts...and willingly engages in fights when required."
It's not perfect, but it's close to what I'm thinking. That's why you won't see Mark Messier on this list -- he's more of a powerful forward than a power forward by my definition.
Same thing with Gordie Howe.
I like my power forwards to bring a bit more menace to the table. That's a quality inherent in each of these picks.
