Weight is more important since the larger players are harder to defend and clear from the crease. For example, Lucic is not effective because of his height. He is effective because of his weight.
Regarding the comparisons to Silfverberg, in four seasons in the SEL, he scored 108 points in 166 games.
88 of those points came in his 2nd (34) and 3rd (54) years post-draft. If Collberg puts up around 30 points next year, he's following pretty much the same path.
