Silfverberg could be an Eriksson, even if a bit less productive

Same thing for Stone vs Benn

Ceci max potential would be Seabrook

More realistically, Zibanejad reminds me more of Rick Nash, a big strong body with good skating, a lot of skills and a great shot (even though if Nash skillset is a bit more high end), who can also put on a show with miraculous moves and score highlight reel goals. I know Nash is a very big name and always had a lot of hype around him but in terms of tangible results, I think Zibanejad could be a 30-30 guy too




(but that'd be if everything turns right, which almost never happen
