IMO Silfverberg has been playing great, he has showed a much higher compete level than I expected. He battles hard for loose pucks is willing to engage physically and almost scored a beauty of a goal tonight.
Yep. Silf isn't really a traditional top line player. He's more of a complementary player on a top line. He's got the shot and smarts to be up there but his willingness to do the grunt work will keep him there. You can put this guy on any line in any role and he'll get it done for you. Definitely a keeper imo.

I'm surprised to see this type of negative toned type of thread after the game he had tonight. I was hoping to see him in the shootout. He picked apart a lot of goalies in the old skills comp last season in the SEL.

He's only going to get better folks.
