I mean Barkov is a better defensive player already and is a physical specimen, he'd definitely solve the question of having size down the middle, but Lindholm has more speed and is naturally more assertive. And while both can play physical, Lindholm is willing to get his hands dirty whole Barkov, despite being a tank, is more the type to let the physical play come to him. A Galchenyuk-Lindholm spine gives the Habs an offensive identity to build around.
Complex question:

Which of the two is the better complement to Galchenyuk, or, which of the two would Galchenyuk better complement?

I know that we're supposed to ignore need and go BPA, but might as well.
