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

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

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.

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

Parise is the best right now though.

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.

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.

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.
