To be fair, Kruger was in the NHL this year while Silfverberg was accomplishing way more in the SEL. Kruger is like 5 months older(and an 08 eligible), but they are both 1990 born.

2009-10: 38 games, 11 goals, 20 assists, 31 points, +16
2010-11: 52 games, 6 goals, 29 assists, 35 points, +12

2009-10: 48 games, 8 goals, 8 assists, 16 points, +6
2010-11: 53 games, 18 goals, 16 assists, 34 points, -12

So if Kruger was still in the SEL last year instead of the NHL then he might be just as "accomplished" as Silfverberg. They are closer than you're making it seem especially since Kruger plays a more important position. Silfverberg is definitely the better goalscorer though. Kruger shouldn't be underestimated though.
