Barkov blew my mind when I finally got to see him play a full game. He will be REALLY good! Lindholm has "Foppa" written all over him, <3.
Everything you said about Mack is exactly how I feel about Barkov and, conversely, I rank Mack, Drouin, Jones and Lindholm all ahead of Barkov.

I dont' see much Foppa in Lindholm either, to be honest. Forsberg could dominate a game on strength and physicality alone. Never seen that from Lindholm (although it's hard to watch much of his games beyond Youtube footage). He's much more of a Backstrom type to me.
