NJAY. I am used to it. Gord Miller and Pierre Mcquire have complemented the Devils all year. TSN always does. Too bad you guys are stuck with ESPN.

Wow they really love this kid -- apparently Lou does, too, if he trades up for him!

So what year is this kid in UND?

Sounds like a good Center for the Devils. Most of the guys seem shocked that he was still available at 17th.

And the Devils pick!!!.......Zach Parise

10. Zach Parise

Born: July 28, 1984, Faribault, Minn.

2002-03: University of North Dakota

Pos: C | Ht: 5-11 | Wt: 186 | Shoots: L

Central Scouting: No. 9 North American skater

The Parise name conjures up memories of a hard-nosed forward. Zach's dad, J.P. Parise, lasted 13 NHL seasons mainly because of his competitiveness.

Zach is more talented than the old man. He's creative with the puck and has a soft touch around the net. He enters the draft as the top offensive threat coming out of college. He put up a lot of points as a freshman, averaging almost 1.5 per game.

A superb playmaker who had 101 assists in his final high school season, the most obvious trait inherited from his father is determination.

Said one college scout: "He is a star. He can do it all. He can skate. He is strong, and I do not know what his knock is. He can do just about anything. He is a fantastic player. To me, he is magical. I think he is one of the best college players to come down the pipeline in years."

The knock is his size. Parise does not have a thick body yet, and time will tell whether he gets bigger and faster.

"I don't see size as an issue," said a scout. "His dad wasn't big. Zach's a competitor like his dad."

YEAR    TEAM         LEA.    GP    G    A   Pts.  PIM

'02-03  North Dakota WCHA    39   26   35    61    34

       USA          WJC      7    4    4     8     4

The Hockey News says: Skilled forward

You can never hope to predict Conte/Lou only hope he doesn't get your soul in the progress.
