At approximately 205lbs, and with his simple, straight-line approach, Knight could potentially play in the NHL right now. But being able to play and being ready to contribute are two very different things and Knight may be better served by continuing to develop his offensive game in junior, and on the world stage for Team USA at the World Junior championships. Regardless of whether he makes the team this year or the year after, Knight has a very low bust factor and a bright future as a Ryan Callahan-type.

I understand why the trade was made but it was not required at that time nor did we get the better of the deal....
Isn't on the HF top 50 for someone who's such a superstar, interesting. It's almost like you think HF is never wrong, in which case
Easily the best defenseman available in the 2004 Entry Draft, Barker brings a lot to the table. As his 21 goals and 65 points in 2003-04 playing for the Medicine Hat Tigers show, he has an offensive game that can dominate from the blueline. However, there is more to the third pick overall than offense. His game away from the puck is quite advanced for his age and he has a mean streak that should serve him well down the line. Barker will be an anchor of the Blackhawk defense for years to come.
is either a gross exaggeration of the definition of anchor, or Barker's way better than everyone thinks he is.
