  Thank you,

No, I'm afraid not.  The visualization components of NodeXL uses some features of WPF that are not available in Silverlight, and therefore you can't use those components in Silverlight applications.  You could use the lower layers of NodeXL -- namely the Core, Layout, Algorithms and Adapters assemblies -- and build your own Silverlight visualization layer on top of those, but I know that's not what you're asking for.
