Silfverberg is the best right now, but is 3 and 4 years older. This is a very good poll, but it is hard to get an inside track when one guy was just drafted, another had an injury plagued year in different leagues, and one was the best player in the SEL regular season, and playoffs.

I think they all turn out to be impact NHLer's (Top 6 players), but for me to pick an option would be a complete stab in the dark.

Voted for Silfverberg - Forsberg - Zibanejad but I wouldn't be surprised if Forsberg turned out to be the best of the three either, with Silfverberg as second.

Voted Silfverberg, Forsberg, Zibanejad, based on where I feel they're at right now, I wouldn't be surprised if that changes. All 3 should be at least respectable NHLers, most likely all top 6ers.

Based on pure talent:

Forsberg
Zibanejad
Silfverberg

Zibanejad at his best is scary good though, he is still a bit immature and inconsistent. Silfverberg is the best player right now but he is a few years older and more well-rounded as of now.

Forsberg is overrated. Zibanejad puts up better numbers in the SEL than Forsberg in the Allesvagan (whatever it's called)

Zib put up better numbers in a better league at the same age, despite still being very raw. Zib was drafted higher in the NHL draft. Zib has the size, speed, strength package that can get him to the NHL and ensure his success in the league. Zib almost made the NHL at 18 years old despite still being very raw.

Silfverberg > Zibanejad > Forsberg
Forsberg is riding much on his skill and finesse, he's the kind of guy that even other swedes are jealous of, the guy who did nothing in school and still aced every test, and you know will be good at what ever he tries in life. But there's more fighting spirit in zibanejad and silfverberg, which i can see translating better to small ice.

You do realise that by quoting stats and draft position, you basically admit that your only pretending to know your talking about?

Well, they're very different ages. Zib is a year and 4 months older than Forsberg, which probably accounts for the 1 cm and 6 kg Zib has on Forsberg. I don't know about their relative speeds, but speed is supposed to be one of Forsberg's strengths, so I doubt it's a major advantage.

As for their performances at the same age... well, Forsberg was in Allsvenskan for 43 games last year, with only 6 games in SuperElit, while Zib at the same age spent half of the year (26 games) in Elitserien and the other half (27 games) in SuperElit. Forsberg's 17 points in 43 games in Allsvenskan seems to be the better numbers, compared to Zibs 9 points in 26 games in Elitserien. In fact, if you look at the relative ages they were when playing in the same leagues, it appears that Forsberg has pretty consistently been ahead of Zib on the development curve.

Forsberg will be way ahead of Silfverberg when he's 21. Silfverberg was a late bloomer, but is the best of the bunch right now.

Future: Forsberg, Silfverberg, Zibanejad
Now: Silfverberg, Zibanejad, Forsberg

Zibanejad - While he won't put up as many points as Silf, but becomes the more valuable player.
Silfverberg - Puts up the most goals of the three.
Forsberg - Most assists, but ends up the least valuable.
