    The question is quite simple, who is the and who will be the better player. Both played in north dakota, both had pretty similar numbers, Parise his 2 years younger.. or close to that both are rookies.. but is it possible that one of the 2 relied on the other one to produce in the NCAA i know Bochenski has 13pts in 19 games.. and that he is 6'2'' unlike the 5'11 of Zach. And i believe both have there talents, as Parise was a force in the WJC. but i think its fair to ask. :)

    your answer and toughts would be greatly appreciated.

    Try to keep in mind each system, who and what lies infront of both players. In Parise's case the only centerman that he will have to surpass in his carrer as it stands now is Gomez, being that Madden fits the checking role. BB upside is that he can play on either side, yet there is much much more talent on the top 2 lines in Ottawa for a very long time. If you play it by the numbers it seems to me that you can only put up points while you are on the ice. Lean towards Parise, he fits the mold now with less competition pushing him for his job...

    Not necessarily true for Bochenski. He will play on the top two lines when he comes back from injury, and will fill the same role for as long as he is on the team. He will also get a centermen next year who is actually offensive, so he will have someone feeding him in the slot for more goals instead of having to create all his offense on his own.

    I am not saying he will be better than Parise, just stating what Bochenski's role is, and will be on the Sens, if he doesnt get traded at some point.

    Like comparing apples and oranges ...

    As a season ticket holder at University of North Dakota, I had the great pleasure of watching them for enjoyable years.

    Parise is the classic two-way forward, who is a scoring threat but is equally valuable stopping chances. He's also great for lockerroom chemistry and had a major impact at UND in that regard. He can fit in on virtually any team.

    Bochenski is the puck wizard, shooting and passing, and that kind of skill is rarer.
    A career power play specialist is a distinct possibility. (Not that Ottawa needs scoring right now.)

    Assuming the NHL continues with strict enforcement of obstruction, stickwork, and assuming I'm starting from scratch, I'd pick Parise.
