I don't give a shit about stat wanking. Stats are for Ryan Ma to jerk off to. I watch the players, notice the little things they do and react accordingly.
The simple truth is this: People in NA are mostly clueless about Silfverberg because he never came on to the scene on the regular platforms like WJC and whatnot. That doesn't take away his apparent skill, hockey smarts and work ethic for those of us who are actually watching him. All you have is stat progression hoohaa that mostly doesn't fit into the picture when we talk about semi-late bloomers like Silfverberg.
He's a carbon copy of Loui Eriksson.
I think Loui's skating is much better
