I'm pretty sure no player has ever finished a season with 1+ PPG in the SM-liiga
before becoming NHL draft eligible
, Barkov's numbers are exceptional. Having watched plenty of his games, I feel confident that he'll go top 6 in this draft, and there's absolutely no way he goes in the late 1st (i.e. about 20th-30th). He has top 6, 2-way centre written all over him, he's a very safe pick with plenty of upside, he simply will not drop.
