Look what's starting to happen with Silfverberg as he gets comfortable playing on small ice. Give Zibanejad time to settle in - this is a development year. We can start putting production expectations on him next year.
He's never really played with high end hockey sense wherever he's played. Like I said, this isn't a dealbreaker in terms of being a scoring forward, although some act like it is.

Milan Michalek isn't exactly the craftiest mind with the puck either. And skill and size-wise these two players are pretty similar.
