He don't have the greatest defence/offence in front of him. He will be good...just wait and relax when you see a good performance by a prospect!
I was very vocal on this board prior to the draft that I wanted Parise but would settle for Kastitsyn, I certainly am not some ridiculous bandwagon jumper. As for the Parise/Higgins comparison there are some similarities such as leadership, work ethic and other intangibles but as far as pure skill and talent Parise is definitely a notch above Higgins.
I don't beleive any team can have too many "winners" such as Parise and Higgins.
