Lindholm is the sexy pick right now because Sweden went to the finals and Lindholm is playing well. But lets not forget that Barkov is 9 months younger than Lindholm even though both players are draftable in the next draft.
Barkov's defensive game is just so good that you'll know he'll be a solid defensive guy in the NHL. With Barkov's size that combination alone is a very valuable thing to have. But add his offensive abilities that we didnt really see enough in the WJC's (but have seen in the FEL this season) this guy is a complete package. His skating isnt very fast, sure, but he's determination and work ethic makes me believe that he will actually end up as a pretty good skater. If Barkov was playing for Sweden right now he would look so much better.
I admit i dont know much about Lindholm but what i've seen from him this WJC (he's been great) i just wouldnt be able to pass up on Barkov because of him.
