As has been discussed before, Barkov's style resembles that of his father's in many ways. A year ago people talked how he is bad skater, now they are starting to realise he has the same deceptively effective slide his father did.
One of Barkov Senior's best assets was tremendous combination of strength and balance. It was basicly impossible to tackle him down. I remember it happening just once during his 10 year stint in FEL, opponent was Slovak goliath Ivan Majesky. There's a lot of same quality developing in Junior. Now he manages fine in puck battles against mature opponents, in five years he will be an immovable rock.
