Please tell me what kind of a 2nd line center scores 20-30 points? And what makes you believe that's his potential?
Granlund ? Or is he projected to be a 3rd line grinder? Barkov seems like a center version of Jesse Joensuu to me, big guy, sucks at skating, average hands. If he ever gets a chance to play at the NHL, He'll be back in no time.
