I agree. You figure if you are picking in the 1st round, Barker is less risk than any 18 year old being picked. So in reality, a team is giving up a 3rd rounder for him.

The problem with these offer sheets is GM's signing guys who couldn't possibly live up to the salary they are being offered. I think Barker can live up to 3 million dollars a year. I saw him play a few times this year and have come away very impressed with his offensive game.

I think the concerns about his defensive game are blown out of proportion. The difference between Phaneuf and Barker is athleticism and speed.
