Who is this "Parise" dude?

I'm sorry but everyone's talking about Crosby and Ovechkin. But at last year's WJC there was a guy named Zach Parise and he owned the rest of the World.

I don't know anything about him, I don't even know if he was drafted already, but isn't he as good as Crosby and Ovechkin?

Drafted 17th Overall in 2003 by the New Jersey Devils. Played for North Dakota in the NCAA and his main knock is his size (which isn't small really).

And he kind of slowed down come the elimination round. He was tied in points with Nigel Dawes and Anthony Stewart, which is probably why he wasn't being pimped as much.

No he is not as good as Crosby and Ovechkin to make it short.

Yep.

I didn't pay ANY attention to prospects until ... 3 or 4 months I arrived to the HF Boards.
I just knew Ovechkin, Malkin and that's all. LOL

From what I've heard he's not exactly lighting it up this season.

He obviously performed well at the WJC last year, but I think a lot of the excitement surrounding Parise was that NJ traded up to draft him, and the Devils are traditionally known as a pretty good drafting team. If they liked what they saw in him enough to trade up, he must be a solid prospect. Just not in the class of AO or Crosby.

Also, a few guys like Pierre Maguire were absolutely ga-ga over Parise at the draft - take that for what it's worth.

More than a year older than Ovechkin and just over three older than Crosby. Good player but certainly not underhyped.

He's been more or less a point per game, and consistantly 2nd in rookie scoring.

It is fun to watch the Parise nay-sayers come out throughout this site. Quite often, like the post above, they originate from Oiler fans in sheep's clothing. This is often the residual from the ongoing Parise versus Pouliot debates among we passionate Oiler fans. The Oiler draft decision to trade down remains a hot topic.

How can you spot an Oiler fan in sheep's clothing. Be on the lookout for remarks such as:
- "Pierre Maguire totally over hyped him";
- "(Oiler) scouts said he wore down over the shorter college season";
- "He's not big enough to play in the NHL".

It's all good fun.

By point a game you mean .75 ppg and by 2nd, you mean tied for 7th, right?

Parise is a better version of Chris Higgins and believe me it's a compliment.

I;m a Panther Fan from Alberta...

Watch Parise play in the Mac Midget Tourny held in Calgary every Christmas season.He and his brothers play(ED) for Shattuck St.Mary's.I watched St.Mary's go up against Fort Sask. and Joffrey Lupul in the finals.St.Mary's won handily in the Finals and I believe Zach got MVP. one year in the tourny.Marty Murray coached them for awhile in Minnesota where the school is located.

I think Parise will be a LONG TERM solid player in the NHL.

Parise is a Devils prospect with great upside, is very fast and very talented, he is a great playmaker and has great offensive game. He will play in the NHL, this kid give 110% when he plays.

Didn't Crosby play there too??? As a 15 year old, before he even got drafted by Rimouski. I'm pretty sure JP, Zach's dad, was and still is the director of hockey operations at St-Mary's college.

Parise is very good.

That being said he isn't as good as Crosby.

Yeah not every Oiler fans hates Parise and I agree that Parise = Mike York

York is one very solid player but do you win with 2 guys his size on the top 2 lines – me thinks not and that was proven when Comrie and York were both in Edmonton. Parise is a good young player - but Pouliot and JF Jacque are both having great years in the QMJHL as well. Solid trade for both teams and it will be interesting to see what NJ does with Gomez and Parise – because that would be two guys under 5-10 on their top lines

Yep - but it's a prep school, not a college.

I've known about this guy forever, but one thing I still don't understand...

How do you pronounce his name?!

Is it Pare-ih-say or Pare-eee-s? I've always used the second one, but I don't trust my own judgement... I called Khabibulan Kab-ib-u-len for a good year before my friend got fed up and corrected me.

Add two more assists to Parise's stats in the first period vs Providence. I feel he will be close to a PPG by years end. Everyone is getting healthy again.
