Could it be this is the guy we were hoping/praying Cumiskey would turn into?
Barrie has been good, I've been watching a lot other teams Barrie does a lot of things a lot of other players can't. He reminds me a bit of 2010 Doughty where he would be creative with the puck to make sure the play was completed.

He's exploding with confidence right now, I honestly see Barrie having an upside of top pairing (I think he'll top out as a #3 capable of being a #2). He needs to work on his shot, get a bit stronger, and work on his defensive play a bit more, but he's excelled at every level.
