How does it reek of denial? McDonagh has actually played in the NHL and is showing that he has butt loads of potential. Let's not forget that McDonagh is only in his second year and is doing exceptionally well. What's to say that with his great effort that he won't amount to be better than Suter?

What has Kreider proven that he is as good or better than Pairse? Nothing. Kreider hasn't played a single game at the NHL level and lacks the all around skill that Parise has. Parise was almost 2xPPG in his second WJC, Kreider was only a PPG. Parise produced immediately in the NCAA whereas Kreider has been okay. Look at high school stats, Parise had 340 point in 125 high school games, Kreider had just 97 points in 50 games. If Kreider played the same amount of games, he still would only have produced 243 points.

You said Kreider could be our Parise, but what he done to constitute that? McDonagh has at least proven himself at the NHL level. McDonagh is on pace for 37 points this season, 13 more points than Suter in his second season.
