CHARLIE Dixon has the ability and temperament to be the main man up forward for Port Adelaide in 2016, captain Travis Boak says.

Dixon was the Power's marquee recruit in the off-season, traded as part of a three-way deal between his former club Gold Coast, Richmond and Port Adelaide.

The powerful key forward played just a half of the Power's final NAB Challenge match against Richmond last week, but that was enough to show Boak his team had hit the jackpot landing Dixon.

"He's come straight into the club and fitted in straight away," Boak said.

"The boys absolutely love him and what a lot of people might not know is that he's a great leader out on the ground.

"His presence out on the field is outstanding. If we get the ball in to him he's going to do work in the air but also on the ground.

"He's been a great addition to our club."

Add in Jay Schulz, Justin Westhoff, Chad Wingard, Robbie Gray, Jake Neade and the Power has the makings of a potent forward line.

The Power skipper is confident Schulz, Westhoff and Dixon can co-exist in the same forward line.

"I certainly think they can all work together. They all bring different aspects to our forward line," Boak said.

"We've all seen Schulz take those pack marks and ‘speccies’ and Charlie will add to that, but his ability at ground level is unbelievable.

"And Westhoff can play anywhere on the ground. I think we've got a great mix down there and if those three can perform together it will be fantastic for us."

Ex-Demon Jimmy Toumpas is the other player the Power will be hoping flourishes in a new system.

Toumpas, pick No.4 in the 2012 NAB AFL Draft, was traded to the Power after 27 games in three years at Melbourne.

Boak is confident the midfielder can follow the lead of Jared Polec and make a big impact in his first year at his new club.

"He's only three or four years into his career. We see him similar to 'Polly', up in Brisbane he probably struggled a little bit and then he came back to Adelaide and we've seen what he can do," Boak said.

"He (Toumpas) trained with us when he was at the [AFL Academy in 2012] and now coming back to Adelaide he's really settled and enjoying his footy.

"We think we've created a good culture at our club for him to come in and really work hard."

Boak said he still kept in close contact with banned duo Patrick Ryder and Angus Monfries socially, golfing and fishing with the pair.

Under the terms of their suspension, both Ryder and Monfries are unable to be at Alberton for training purposes.

"They're still good mates of ours and we'll continue to catch up with them," Boak said.
