The cool thing regarding Barkovīs play is that the points or somewhat irrelevant. Like Datsyuk or Koivu, Barkov does so much more during the game that it is just stupid just to focus on his point totals. I have always said that even though M. Koivu would not register a single point in the game, he would stil be one of the most important players in the team. Its the same thing with Barkov.

Therefore there is no doubt in my mind that he is destined to be at least a good NHL-player (2nd or 3rd-line center). Its very likely though that his offensive abilities lift him to be a 1st line center-caliber player.
