Hopefully we need some actual top 6 players. Sad thing is I don't want to be relying on a rookie to come and save the day, but any assistance would be appreciated.
I don't think anybody expects him to save the day, by any means. Thing is, depth is huge in the playoffs. You need to find goals in different places. Adding a player with that kind of a shot never hurts, in my opinion. Our powerplay has been brutal, and he's definitely a guy that could help in that area.
As it stands, Daugavins, Butler, Konopka and Klinkhammer are the guys most likely to rotate in and out of the lineup. I prefer Klinkhammer over the others, but Silfverberg over all four on the grounds that he's got a better shot, playmaking ability and is no worse defensively than any of the aforementioned. He's also been a dominant player in a men's league against tough competition when it counts the most.
That being said, it's been mentioned that he may be having shoulder issues. We'll have to see how serious it is.
