If he's good, why not? We have drafted an overage player a few years ago in Nygren, so it's clearly about talent first. Elias Lindholm is like a month younger than Wennberg - should we not draft him either?

Young for the draft class is a plus especially if they stand out - That's what makes Barkov so appealing, the fact that he's THAT big and THAT mature despite being one of the youngest players in his class, but BPA is BPA.
