I was at the Blues - Tappara game and it was clear that they where saving Barkov's line for today's game. Really short shifts and unfortunetly the game was pretty much over after two periods. Metsola was stellar, really good rebound control.

Barkov played overall well, didnt lose pucks. He got overpowered in the boards one time (on the first or second shift), but other than that he didnt do any mistakes. Some nice flashes of brilliance where shown.

Yeah, just look at that backhand, how sharp it is and how much power there was behind.

MBauer 02-16-2013 02:04 PM

That was absolutely nasty.

thomast 02-16-2013 02:38 PM

Barkov has elite hands in traffic. He doesen't deke alot but if he needs to do it he is capable of doing it. I've seen him dekeing out 3 players with single move.

And yes that is Datsyuk move with backhand. Never seen it before so we can patent that as Barkovian-deke.

InjuredChoker 02-16-2013 02:49 PM

That SO-goal was filthy.

I think Datsyuk did that himself at the KHL all-star game.

Yup, first goal in the video:



It's still the Datsyukian deke.

My bad. Seems like that goalie didn't even try!

It's all-star game, he probably doesn't try. Doesn't change the fact that Datsyuk made that move first though.

From a resident hater on the Leafs board:

"It was a lateral move that was why it was ok, it was close but the refs probably made the right call. Still I would call that a play of patience, not really sick talent. All he did was outwait the goalie. Nothing sick about his mitts on display to me."

Cotton500 02-16-2013 05:00 PM

On a semi related note my google translate always translates fellow Tappara player Elmeri Kaksonen to Elmer Fudd Gemini.

This alone makes checking the Tappara game reports worth while.

:laugh:

Kaksonen actually means "a twin".

Barkov has a very nice set of shootout moves overall, he's not a one-trick pony by any means. But being good in shootouts is just a bonus.

I've seen him going 4/4 in single shootouts against jokerit in U20 match.

As if that's any kind of feat. Jokerit aren't exactly known for their SO prowess...

Is it too much to think that maybe Barkov' seen the video I posted as well and tried it for himself?

A bonus that will earn his future NHL team a lot of extra points.

Could Columbus target him, even at 1st overall?

Of course they could, but I don't think they would... Even if they did go off the board and picked Barkov, it wouldn't be that big of a stretch. He's a manchild with tremendous skill and hockey sense. He will be a solid #1 C.

Either Jones or MacKinnon goes 1st overall, Barkov somewhere after that.
