I could see Murray trading a bunch of players on one way contracts to make more room for some of the prospects. Dziurzynski and Hoffman have played well so far and may make Regin, Daugavins and Condra expendable. Then there is Noesen who may be able to push for a bottom six spot as well.
Stone and Zibanejad have also been impressive and should be able to earn themselves a spot on the team.
IMO based of what I have seen so far Silfverberg isn't NHL ready. That isn't to say that he isn't tremendously skilled, he simply just needs more time to adjust to playing in North America. Anyone who has watched both of Bingo's games can attest to the fact that Silfverberg has struggled somewhat so far. It might actually be detrimental to his development to throw him into the NHL too early. Last game, he nearly got annihilated by a hit and left himself open to get hit pretty hard a few times. Fortunately most AHL players aren't as fast or as strong as NHL players, which saved Silverberg from getting run over. If he is thrown into the NHL at this point, it might jeopardize his confidence with the puck because he is likely to get run over pretty badly a few times. With that said, this may be a different story 10 games into the season.
