I think you're reading a bit too much into what is simply the standard variation in scoring that any player goes through over the course of the season. I'm sure as the season progresses Barkov will go through further periods where he puts up a bunch of points in a hurry, as well as periods where his production slows, because that's simply the case for all hockey players.
Yes, I use the word "slump" loosely here, almost tongue in cheek. More seriously, variation or not, he is sliding in the scoring. But if he can keep up with PPG, it's good for a 17 years old. The red hot start made it look too easy.
