I'm completely satisfied with Mackinnon and Jones being ranked at the very top of the class, but I definitely agree with you about the relative merit of Barkov and Lindholm. I'd lean Barkov if we were faced with having to choose between the two because I think a huge, skilled potential no.1 center is something we've needed for ages, but I have to admit that I've had a man-crush on Lindholm since the wjc. I think he's going to be a legitimate star in the NHL, and he's a rare blend of complete game with a touch of dynamism and grit.

So much awesome in that video.
