He is flashy, fast, incredibly skillful, big and has a good vision. A complete package. What a steal by Sabres in the 2011 draft. Really fun player to watch.

Barkov is good for his age, smart, responsible and effective. But rather boring player to watch, to be frank. He hasn't the speed or flash of Armia. Or never will have.

Anyways, I would rank Finnish top forward prospects (drafted and undrafted) as follows now:

1) Armia
----------
2) Barkov
-----------
3a) Mi. Granlund
3b) Teravainen
just no, Richard Panik is better, Granlund is better too (not Markus), and I could continue with Yakupov, Tarasenko, Kuznetsov, Huberdeau, Strome and many other prospects
