Like others have already stated, the biggest differences between O. Jokinen and Barkov are the defensive play and work ethic, both in Barkov's favor. I feel much more comfortable comparing Barkov to Mikko Koivu, the competitiveness and work ethic are of a similar caliber. Defensively I see Barkov ending up as valuable as Koivu, but offensively Barkov's potential is higher.
