Im not sure what the expectation was other than he's a really good player, i dont think anyone thought he was coming in and putting up 40 goals or anything.
He's a complete player (or willbe that kind of guy IMO) sort of like a lesser Alfie.

remember is 5 games into his NHL career, lets see how he looks near the end of the year.
He loses far too many battles, and loses the puck far too much to have "tremendous puck control skills." That is an area he has to work on.

Silf has been hyped as a Calder candidate by this board for awhile now, but so far he has not looked fast or skilled enough to be anything more than an average 2nd/3rd line winger in his first year. Granted he is just getting started, but I don't see him developing into the star forward many here thought he would become.
