Stop Calling David Booth "big Power Forward".

93 posts in this topic

he listed 6‘ a quite small size in NHL now.

Samuelsson listed 6' 2"

Thank you.

God, read my topic, don't call him "big power forward" as I saw in many other threads...

The power in power-forward comes as a result using speed to drive to the net, hence, why it's harder to contain bigger players like Lucic, Backes, Bertuzzi because of the speed and size advantage over defenders.

Booth is not the tallest power-forward but the guy always tries to take on 4 people in the offensive zone and drive to the net.

Who is this directed at?

"Power forward" doesn't have to be a giant...it represents the style of play. Booth does go barreling through/around people and drives to the net. He gathers momentum and it's hard to get him off the puck when he does (love players who use the one arm strong arm move to ward off defenders and shield the puck). So I'd consider that representative of a power forward.

Booth weighs like 212 lbs......He drives to the net and is the best skater on the team. He's a power forward.

Height isn't everything. It's more so his style of play and how he uses his size that makes him more of a power forward.

Wow your an idiot.

Since when does height make your powerful? I'm sorry but are you serious?

Penner is taller then Bertuzzi and most powerforwards and continues to be over-powered by delicious pancakes. Being tall and a powerforward isn't as effective as being 6 foot or 6 two, your lower on the ice and can be harder to knock down without taking a penalty.

He prays to God a lot, maybe God isn't a Canuck fan because Booth gets nothing done.
