Yeah don't get me wrong on Barkov, the guy's been productive in what's the 3rd or 4th best league in the world behind the NHL and KHL (possibly SEL, possibly better, not gonna be the guy to fight that battle). But the prospect boards, despite the great information you can get there, are also filled with posters that will pimp the crap out of (insert nationality here)s at every turn, and a fair share that do nothing more then talk out their ass. A lot of the better prospect posters don't tend to be overly boisterous either, IE: X-Sharkie was a rather quiet poster despite a pretty solid post count, he didn't go out there making outlandish claims... and he was an absolute goldmine for info about US prospects. Now he's an amateur scout for the Jets after being hired away from his spot as Player Personnel Director for the Chicago Steel.
