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's not even about who will do better this year; it's about who will ultimately be better. My bet is on Silfverberg.
DAT pass

I would argue that Stone's offence IQ, positioning and ability to have the versatility to play Sniper, playmaker or power forward makes him the superior prospect to Silfverberg.
I agree. Cowen will be a stud for us in the very near future. Yes he made mistakes, as most rookies do, but the man was a beast in the playoffs.

Oh, and Silfverberg gets the nod as most NHL ready prospect.
