What do you think - could Barkov drop out of top10 if his WJC performance goes on like this?
Valeri Nichushkin should be a riser, at least. Drouin, too.
Absolutely not, stats are not all that important when evaluating a prospect.
Barkov is a 6'-3" center who has a heavy shot, great 2 way game, above average skating, a good physical presence, and is an extremly smart player. From what I have seen he is a top 5 pick without much hesitation. I have him as a top 3 pick right now behind only Jones and MacKinnon.
The only player I think can knock Barkov out of the top 3 is Lindholm who is think will be an absolute star in the NHL, I see alot of Claude Giroux in his game.
