How do you say it?

We all hear Zach Parise's name pronounced in two different ways really.

Which one do you say?

Pari-zay?

or Pari-see?

Zach Parise said his dad pronounces it Pari-zay because hes canadian but Zach prounounces it Pari-see because he is American. So I am gonna go with Pari-see.

You're all saying it wrong, the correct pronunciation is "Pimp".

I say Puh-ree-zee.

I say it the way Doc says it, because he asks the player and that's what he uses.

(That's how you get Yan Danny.)

He also edited the NHL Pronunciation Guide for 23 years.

I say Pari-zay. I know Zach says it the other way, but it sounds better with a French accent.

So, what did the Bruins board think?

I don't say anything, I just stand there with my mouth agape and not make a sound.

Until I see Cory Murphy try to make a defensive play.

Pari-see, but I pronounce names any damn way I please...

like Kov-awl-shoouk.

I just don't think "chuck" sounds right on a non-NA.
