Jakob Silfverberg 2011/2012 Season Video

This video was just created 5 days ago that I found on youtube and it absolutely deserves its own thread. I got goosebumps watching this. Man, do we have an amazing prospect in our hands or what. Can't wait for next year.

Whoever created this video deserves a round of applause.



Obligatory "dat shot" comment.

What a filthy shot. He's going to score 30 in the NHL at some point that shot is just ridiculous.

This is why we gave him a spot in the playoffs. The kid looks like a gamebreaker.

My expectations for him will be realistic as he gets used to NA, but this is promising. He seems to be able to find open spots on the ice, and paired up with someone that sees the ice as well as Spezza does, this could be a great fit.

Thanks for sharing, that is an awesome video!

Can't wait to see this guy play in a sens uni this season, the most hyped I've been for a Sens forward prospect since...Spezza?

And to think pierre dorion said a couple months ago that petersson's shot is "without a doubt better". Gets me excited about petersson offensively.

Petersson, Silfverberg and Sebastian Collberg have the best shots out of Swedes I've seen since.. Näslund? They're great shooters, as you can tell.

Seems like a lot of "seeing eye shot" goals in that video.

On the positive side, some guys just naturally find the back of the net.

I hope he is able to have success in the NHL. I'll wait and see what he does before getting to excited.

You can definitely see why they wanted him to get quicker off his first and second steps. If he was able to do that he could play like Kessel off the rush and just look to snipe but without it there's no separation between the defender and attacker and that puck is going out of play every single time. I see him being more effective in the NHL down low and along the boards as a playmaker but maybe the shooting will translate on small ice and NHL goalies.

I disagree. Most of his shots are released before the goalie even has a chance to get ready. Also, you can tell that his accuracy is absolute top notch. Slapper and wrister.

I think you're right but there will also be a lot less space in the NHL. A lot of those goals were very similar plays where he had a fair bit of time to rip one.

Will be really interesting to see how he adapts

What a freaking stud!! Can see him putting up some big numbers this season ala Landeskog and Henrique and contend for ROY. He's going to be that good!

Can't wait to see him come September!

I'm definitely with you on that one but something you don't see in that video is how Silfverberg is an absolute stud at protecting the puck. He makes room for himself. Which usually results in a shot on net or attracting another defender to him that creates a passing lane for an open teammate.

Something a lot of you will see next year from Silfverberg is how he reads the game so well. He makes simple, simple plays that go such a long way to creating a scoring chance. We saw some of it last year when the Sens had a good 3 minute attack in the NYR zone and Silfverberg was in the middle of it all, using his skates, body, stick etc... to confuse the d and make more room for his teammates.

Silfverberg played against inferior players in the SEL in comparison to the NHL, the NHL has bigger & better players on a smaller surface who can take away his time & space. However, I am hoping he turns into another Alfredsson & still finds a way to put pts up on the board. I hope he solidifies our top 6, I just don't know if he will.

He's not going to score on many 25 ft wristers in the NHL.

And where was the goalie on that last "greatest goal"?

Look, I hope for the best with this kid, but I think we should keep expectations realistic.

He's nowhere near the level of prospect that Spezza was either.
