Silfverberg should adjust faster than Rundblad, I have little doubt about that. I'd even go as far to say that he should be able to come in, score 15-20 goals and take a big role as a PKer for a competitive team. There's just a lot of talent that is primed to come into the league next year, and I won't be shocked if some of those players end up as close to PPG players and top line guys in their rookie campaigns.
Rundblad might not even sniff the NHL till mid way through next season, but he's still a blue chip prospect with huge upside. Going to the AHL was the best thing for him. There was always going to be an adjustment period.
