Can you see Silfverberg ever being that kind of player? I cant but again, havent seen much of him.
Eriksson was never expected to develop into what he is today. After breaking into the league, Eriksson looked like a young solid two way player capable of scoring 20 a year, but few expected the rapid progression into one of the games premier wingers.

It's optimistic to expect Silfverberg to develop into Eriksson of today, but it isn't a ridiculous expectation. I expect Silfverberg will be the type of player who like Eriksson, will need a couple of years before he really begins to excell in the NHL.
