If Silfverberg fails to be an impact player in the NHL, it will be because of issues external to the game - character, opportunity, inability to adapt to NA (the environment more than the hockey).
You may be right about the skill, but I was referring to the video which shows shots and I was comparing that to the video from that swiss player who also had/has a really good shot. Maybe SEL goalies are better than in the swiss league, but I doubt its by much.
