Barkov is the best 2-way player in FEL. There's no question about it. I think his defensive skills are better than his offensive skills. Definitely a future selke-candidate, especially if his offense translates to enough points. Many people are wondering if he's got what it takes offensively, but im sure he'll be 2nd line caliber in that aspect. Not the same type of player, but his value in NHL will be similar to Patrice Bergeron IMO.
I dont know if he is ready for NHL next season but i hope he stays in FEL to improve his speed and strenght. Then when he goes overseas he's ready to be an effective #3 defensive center and climb his way up from there.
