Best AMERICAN forward in the NHL right now?
 
Best American forward in the NHL right now?


I say Parise...and he's getting better by the minute!

Dr Grant 01-20-2009 11:58 PM

Parise Right Now, Kane Will be the better player in the future in my opinion. Kessel is no where near these 2.

Parise right now

Kane for the future

Cone 01-21-2009 12:26 AM

Yeah, Kane should pass up Parise, but it's hard to tell if Ryan will pass up Kane.

BigT2002 01-21-2009 12:28 AM

Parise, but Kane is on the heels as a total package

JannikAtTheDisco 01-21-2009 12:31 AM

I love Parise, but Kane easily for me

BrindamoursNose 01-21-2009 12:31 AM

Bobby Ryan is scoring a goal every other game, is a PPG guy.

Hard to discount him. Parise IS better, but I just want everyone to notice Ryan's dominance.

Same for me.

Paul Stastny gets looked over a lot on here. Shame he can't stay healthy it seems.

Parise is the best right now though.

Michael Scofield 01-21-2009 06:23 AM

Parise, such a dominant player

CrosbyCrosby* 01-21-2009 08:34 AM

Ryan Kesler

Konk 01-21-2009 08:41 AM

Zach, he's elite. Pure dominance in all three zones. Kane, Kessel, and Ryan are right up there offensively, but they're behind Parise in everything else.

tony d 01-21-2009 08:55 AM

Zach Parise

Good playing but hardly "dominance".


Parise now and PK for the future.

Ryan has been dominant in games, and he's been dominant at times with Carlyle not giving him the kind of ice time that these other three are getting.

I'm not saying he belongs in this vote. I don't think he does. Not yet, at any rate. When it comes to Anaheim, however, the only forward who has been as good or as consistent as Bobby Ryan is Getzlaf, and somehow I don't think you would say Getzlaf hasn't been dominant.

Let's see if he can hold it up longer than 20 games before we start calling him the best American in the NHL.

He has 14 goals in 30 games.

Pssst... he's already played 30 games. Maybe you should up your consistency argument to 35 games, or 40.

That works too. Like I already said, I don't think Ryan belongs in this discussion. I just thought it was stupid that the apparent cut-off (according to this person) was 20 games.

lakai17 01-21-2009 01:29 PM

Patty Kane for President!

oilsands 01-21-2009 02:20 PM

Parise
He has made it to the playoffs and shown up BIGTIME.

Saw Jiris Tlusty 01-21-2009 02:25 PM

Parise.

Bruinsfan_37 01-21-2009 02:44 PM

Kane
Parise
Kessel
