Quote from the prospect board on Barkov:

Barkov was chosen as MVP and top foward in the U20 4 nations in sundvall sweden. Barkov was on ice on 8 of the 9 goals that finland scored and i think that there was 1 goal scored on his line. Barkov stats was 3 assists in 3 games but he got robbed atleast 2-3 obvious passes by stat guys. I think that 5-6 assists is close to truth. Barkov looked pretty tired out there IMO but managed to put up good tournament.
And that's the thing that really impresses me about Barkov, even when he's not taking over he does all the little things right to impact a game. There's definitely concerns if he has the offensive upside Mackinnon does (as I said before my biggest worry is he already reached his peak because he's so polished), but he also has no real weakness (explosiveness, but even then it's not like he's a slug).

Still, when you are the MVP of a tournament surrounded by players at least 2 years older than you...
