Hows his IQ? Havent focused on him much. I do like his shot and physicality tho.
Anyway, as for barkov, I would probably drop him to a pulock type level. Both are smooth skating big bodies with elite hockey iq. Only difference is barkov has elite hands while pulock has an elite shot. Both arent overly physical and have high character+ work ethic. Both cerebral players. Barkov is younger though and a Center so I would take him before Pulock.
and LR: agreed but I also think we need more grit on the blueline as well
