The issue I have with this is two-fold:
1.) It suggests very poor pro scouting by the Canucks,
And, way more importantly:
2.) AV's comments that Barker reminds him of Higgins really makes AV look like... well, a moron. The only similarities at this point are that they've both been on many teams recently. Higgins had much better seasons and had good peripheral numbers: Barker has been a lousy player his entire career and hasn't stuck anywhere for that reason.
I wouldn't even waste one of 50 spots on this guy, and I don't get why he's making more than league minimum. He's a trashy player who's never done anything in the NHL. Even his one season with 40 points playing on the 1st unit in Chicago was terrible:
Fun fact: In Barker's 40-pt season, he had a negative Corsi Rel, Qualcomp and 60% Ozone rate.
