Their upsides all all pretty similar actually, I'd probably take Barkov, Monahan, Lindholm in that order but it's very close, plus Lindholm already has chemistry with Collberg...
I think Lindholm is more ready than Barkov and Monahan personnally, quite a bit more. He's high IQ and and his game scales very well as skills around him improves. Think Landeskog adaptation capacities, in a more Foppa/Backstrom-like(somewhere in between) skill package. (Disclaimer he's 2nd on my draft list)

Mckinnon

(Then could go either way between)
Lindholm
Jones

(Then could go either way between)
Barkov
Monahan
Ristolainen

Of course this is pre-WJC, my mind is far from set.
