Silfverberg is playing very well since being put on a line with Zibanejad. I think there's some real chemistry developing with those two. I hope they get the chance to stay together when we have our full roster.

Haven't read this thread, but came here to say that Silfverbergs March was really really impressive, especially the latter half. He played like a seasoned veteran there.

Also note I never mentioned anything about his goal scoring prowess, and also he is on pace for 21 goals, not 24.
21 goals for a rookie in a condensed season is pretty damn good.

Silfverberg has really been hitting his stride of late - has looked confident and composed and I really hope he continues, and stays in line with Zibanejad.

If he can get a 4-5 point game, he will get his name tossed into Calder consideration

It is pretty epic seeing them both play on the ice together, the young Swedish connection, but as I said earlier, I really want to see him just kill it on Spezza's wing. Tough decision to break them up, but I expect P Mac will at least try it out upon Spezza's return.

21 goals in an 82 game season, is what he meant. Still, pretty damn good at that.

Mentioned this in another thread, shocked to see on BTN that he has a 1.000 sv% on the PK; no PP goals against while playing a minute a game is fantastic.

The thing I like about Silfverberg is how he plays without the puck. He's a smart player. I think he's going to be a 30/30 guy who can be play both ways.

The more I watch him play, the more I see the Alfie lite that people talk about.

I'm sure he'll get a good long look with Spezza, and I'd expect him to do well. He looks good with Zbad, he looks good with Turris, I'd be surprised if he can't find chemistry with a guy who's going to draw away some coverage and still manage to put the puck on Silfverberg's stick more often.

for the same reason alfie and spezz have generally not been put together over their time here (they are both puck possession guys and theres only so much puck to go around), silf and spezz might not be the best match either.

I was worried about his skating. Not anymore. Not sure what happened, but the kid looks much better now. Fast and agile. Already good - excited for the future.

And I think this is something that only gets better being with the Sens.

The Sens have so much focus on skating and skating fast -- if he works hard, he will only be faster!

Its great to see these young kids start becoming their own. Its nice to see.

This year is really awesome experience for them.

My thoughts exactly. He's been extremelly impressive. The points should only be better the bext few seasons, but his play away from the puck makes him a real gem. Very happy with him

Silfverberg doesn't really play like Hossa. He'll be like a Loui Eriksson but a little bit better at everything and a much, much better shot.

well, no.







Better at everything + a much much better shot would make Silf a 90 point scorer

Under the right circumstances he could be. I think most people would argue that Alfredsson was a little bit better at everything than Eriksson and he only put up over 80 points playing on one of the best lines in the history of the NHL.

Do you mean on average? Because Alfie had 103 points one season on the pizza line in 05/06 and was on pace for over 100 in 07/08 if he had played all 82 games.

At first I had difficulty imagining how he won the MVP in the SEL with the large ice surface. Now it's easy to see why.

He looks like another steal for murray. I dont get the hossa comparison though.

i think it's how he's strong on the puck and likes to skate around, even in traffic. a great shooter that can create plays with good vision and passing, and a solid defensive player. i don't really remember hossa in a sens uniform too much, as i was fairly young (and have a terrible memory, lol) when he played here, but i think those are some qualities they have in common.

edit: i still think alfie is a better comparison

I m not sure if he is that strong on the puck to be similar to hossa. But that shot will take him places.
