Sure it has dropped. Doesn't mean he's not a sick prospect. Players that play as well as Barkov keep getting contracts to KHL even though they play "just" in the SM-liiga. It's still impressive to score at a PPG pace in that league, and to be 17 while doing so is VERY impressive.
Please tell me what kind of a 2nd line center scores 20-30 points? And what makes you believe that's his potential?
