    I think he's doing a wonderful job at the world championships right now. I'm not sure but has he been an analyst at the previous worlds?

    It's really refreshing to hear the views of one of the very good current players in todays game..


    (Yes, I'm looking at you... Keith Jones, Daren McCarty)

    He's so good to look at, which is also refreshing.

    definitely a great thing to have Parise on Versus for this tournament.

    I just dont get how more Americans didnt sign up for this thing knowing that it would be televised on Versus, and that Zach Parise would be helping out with commentary.. If a top 10 or so player in the league is putting his time into this, then the flippin Kevin Porters and RJ Umberger's of the world should be playing in it!

    The comments he makes are 100x more intelligent than most other hockey broadcasters (In America that is, I don't see enough games on Canadian TV). I found him to be quite insightful. He cleary is a little biased but what do you expect.
     
  8. That's what happens when you have Chico Resch calling your games... :laugh:

    He was very good in the USA-Norway match. Looks like a TV-career after the NHL-career is a huge possibility if he wants it himself.
     
  10. He seems very calm too . . for his first time, that's impressive.

    Haven't seen him.

    Colby Armstrong was on TSN last week as well and he looked great as an analyst.

    He looked pretty good for a first timer. Though he should really be spending his time agreeing to an extension with the Devils.

    ZP9 is a great guy, great player, and apparently a great analyst.

    Glad he's kinda helping Team USA
