Alfie = Silfverberg-lite.
Seriously though I don't think calling a player Alfie-lite is in any way disparaging. I mean if this kid goes on to get 700 NHL points and captain the Sens for 4 or 5 years, he'd be Alfie-ultra-lite.
Predicting anything more than that is pretty crazy for a guy with 10 points in his first 29 NHL games. He's gonna keep getting better and he's shown signs of being a fantastic player. Here's hoping he outshines Alfie as a Sen.
One thing I can say with certainty. Without being bitten by a radioactive spider there's no way that Silf is anywhere as explosive a skater as Alfie was as a 22-23 year old rookie. That lack of explosive, strong skating is really the main limiting factor on Silf's upside.
