Does Anyone Else Fear Silfverberg Will Become Our Kadri?

Read the post before making comparisons.

At this point I do kind of fear that Silfverberg will get the Kadri treatment from the fans and the media. When the season started everyone expected Silfverberg to start on fire, and as many should of expected, it is taking the Silver Surfer awhile to acclimate to the NHL. If Greening sticks on the 1st line and Alfredsson comes back to the 2nd line, I would not be shocked if Silver Surfer gets sent down. I believe that there would be no issues if he is sent down for a little more seasoning.

Now what I fear is that the media will get on his case for not performing to potential unrealistic expectations (IE: Kadri). While there has not been an indication of that happening with the media and fans, we know that the Ottawa media can change at the drop of a dime. I hate the situation Toronto has put on Kadri, the over zealous expectations, and hope that things can be realistic moving foward for Silfverberg. That or he can put the puck in the net a little more.
