How's it going for Silfverberg?

Had a great season last year and really impressed in the playoffs with his lethal release. The expectations were fairly high for the kid but he hasn't really shone so far. From what I've heard he is solid in the defensive work but seems a bit shy in the offense.

6 points so far.

So, how is it going?

He seems to be slowly adapting and getting more comfortable. Expectations were too high by some Sens fans, but the truth is that nobody on this team is scoring.

His defensive work has been great though. Good 2-way game.

He's played well so far. Been a bit unlucky with him (and his teammates') shooting, but that'll come. Good puck possession player, fits well with MacLean's style. Responsible defensively. He'd be a third liner on a decent team, but looks like he will mature into an OK top-six winger. Fan expectations were much too high, but that's par for the course. Has definitely contributed on the shootout, and played a big part in winning Ottawa some games.

He's certainly getting more comfortable after every game...

Once the team gets out of it's scoring funk, expect Silf to (hopefully) start putting up points...

He's an example of the recent Swedish player development. All the tools, no toolbox

I've been impressed with his defensive game every time I've seen him play. The offense will come in time. This year is just about him adapting to the NHL speed and North American style of play. I expect him to break out offensively next season.

As someone said earlier, no one else scored as well. Ottawa is winning their games by elite goaltending and good defense, he took a long time developing in Sweden as well. The release is still the same, checkout the penalty shot against NJ or his first NHL goal.

Well at least he doesn't have Finnish roots so less bust potential

Good 2-way player and still adjusting to the nhl game. If you have been watching its obvious that he has a lethal shot, capable of beating even the best goalies in the nhl, however he is not able to use that shot in game that much since he lacks the speed especially the first few steps. I was surprised how on hard he works along the boards I think if he works on his skating he can be a really good 2nd line winger and maybe he can play the first line, but as of now I see him just a 2nd liner unless he works on his skating.
