That's true and fair point but the purpose of this thread is to find out the best of the best, the next elite power forward. Nothing wrong with 20+ goal and 50 point multi-cat studs but looking for the players with the extra gear and ability to put together a David Backes type of season. I mean even the best season from Backes is a long way from the days of Keith Tkachuk, Brendan Shanahan, Rick Tocchet (these guys put together 50 goals, PPG and 200+ PIM seasons) etc. so expectations have already been considerably lowered.
Elite power forwards have always been good goal scorers so looking for someone with the ability to put together 30+ goals isn't too much to ask even in these days IMO. That's what it takes to be considered an elite power forward.
