I know Parent hasn't had a stellar preseason, but he has been very good (especially for his age) in the time he has been here. There is no way that OKT will start ahead of Parent unless it is to give Parent the odd night off (and I have no doubt you would have a very hard time finding another poster here who would disagree with that).
I wouldn't either, after watching Parent last night...he looks sharp.
In fact I really liked Parent-Tollefsen on the 3rd, they were solid and didn't do any mistakes.
As it looks now OKT is heading for the 6th spot if Jones is waived, and Syvret 7th. He's probably not full time ready yet, Holmgren said.
