I caught like 5 or 6 games Whale games at the end of the season, and I followed Parlett closely.

The only comparable attribute to Girardi is that they were both undrafted free agent signings. It ends there. Parlett is more offensive. He's a smooth skater, has a nice outlet pass, and was pretty effective in the offensive zone, especially considering his age and experience. Quarter backing the powerplay was his bread and butter from what I saw. Defensively, although it is an obscure comparison, he reminds me of Justin Faulk if any of you saw the US WJC games. By no means a stud, but he's intelligent and gets the job done. He's also fairly physical. You can also think of Del Zotto during preseason before his rookie year. I wouldn't expect a whole lot defensively from in the NHL though.

Parlett definitely earned a contract from what I saw. Hopefully he doesn't pull a Busto.
