Very different players. On top of this there's still no guarantee that Cowen will be viewed as the better player 5 years down the line -- Rundblad is going to have a bit of a steep learning curve in the NHL because of his style of play. Silfverberg is a bit different because he is already someone that is a bit more of a gritty player (not physical though.) Even in the NHL games that he was in for you could see flashes of what made him the best player outside of the NHL last year.
Stone was OK in his call up, but aside from the pass that Spezza scored on he wasn't really noticeable. But as was said...it's not even about who will do better this year; it's about who will ultimately be better. My bet is on Silfverberg.
