Semin is much more skilled, but I'd take Parise. Could change depending on their performance next year as its pretty close

I take Semin. Mainly because Parise's contract is awful.

In a vacuum, I'd still take Semin though. Parise is slightly better defensively, and has better "intagibles" (whatever they are), but Semin is a much better offensive player.

Parise. I think Semin is more skilled, but Parise is one of the best guys on the forecheck in the game. He just hustles every shift.

Parise is a significantly better PLAYER (as in how he PLAYS each game).

Semin is more talented. That's it.

Last summer free agent circus was all about parise and then nash when he moved to rangers but it was obvious Semin would outplay them both like he did. The same will happen next year. You can talk all the **** about intangibles, Semin makes plays happen, gets pts, controls game and everything you could ask for.

Exactly. Semin put up at PPG pace, turned Jiri Tlusty into a 20 goal scorer in a short season, proved useful in all aspects of the game. Parise is a good player, but far from his 40 goals, 90 points season that people seem to expect him to replicate. Also overpaid. Grossly.

You simply cannot ignore Parise's contract:

2012-13 $7,538,462
2013-14 $7,538,462
2014-15 $7,538,462
2015-16 $7,538,462
2016-17 $7,538,462
2017-18 $7,538,462
2018-19 $7,538,462
2019-20 $7,538,462
2020-21 $7,538,462
2021-22 $7,538,462
2022-23 $7,538,462
2023-24 $7,538,462
2024-25 $7,538,462

Semin's is slightly cheaper and ends in half the time. (2017)

I only say this because Semin has outproduced Parise offensively and is arguably better defensively.

The favoritism towards Parise over Semin is just based on certain stereotypes and misconceptions. Kudos to the Hurricanes to getting a steal of a contract. (relative to Parise)

I'm going to ignore the contracts and take Parise. The better player.

Semin is 2 time world champion and both times he scored couple goals in the final. Parise in the other hand hasn't won anything, kid games don't count. Last year stanley cup playoffs Parise was non-factor. So don't see any winner there. And what comes to this year playoffs so far...
