I would take Barkov for sure.
You're talking about a 17 year old kid that's 6'2", 205lbs with the potential of still growing bigger, putting up PPG, playing 20 minutes a night including top PP AND PK minutes against NHL players and grown men in the SM-liiga putting up more points than the likes of Erik Karlsson and Valtteri Filppula. Not to mention his already polished defensive game and solid yet effective power style kind of play that will translate over to the smaller rinks in NA even better.
by the season's end he will be challenging Mackinnon and Jones for the #1 pick. If it were up to me I would take Barkov because he can step into a NHL role and be effective
