Particularly for me, it's Barkov. I think he's got Malkin-like abilities (probably not quite on that level, but as a very young 17 year old, he's over a PPG in a men's league) , and he's the youngest player in this draft. I agree with the monahan- toews comparison as well, but I think Barkov is a little step up from that, just on his larger frame alone.
I found Jones relied on his build a little too much, he was solid all around I dunno, I was just expecting more out of him I guess.
Totally agree with your Barkov/Monahan comparison. I just think Monahan would be a perfect fit for the Flames.
