If you look at his stats (Tough to do, seeing as he never actually started a game) he has actually played decently apart from the Niagara game in which the whole team played awful except for Fabbri.

Da Silva:

Against Peterborough: Stopped 22 of 23 in 37 mins
Against Windsor: Stopped 6 of 7 in 29 mins
Against SSM: Stopped 2 of 2 in 15 mins
Against Niagara: Stopped 27 of 33 in 47 mins

I think he was fine as a backup, I just don't think they would have trusted him to start for any length of time. It will be good to have him back in Jr. B to get some real starts in.

My only problem with the deal is that Wilson is an OA, and Sparks is eligible to turn pro after this season. Which means the team would have to basically sink or swim with either DaSilva or another rookie with 0 OHL experience.
