At this point, it pretty much is a crap shoot between these four. Any and all could become legit stars in the NHL, and I don't recall such a year where any of four players were regarded with such high rankings. This is a debate that won't have a solid answer for another five years plus.
I have seen almost every game Barkov has played the past 2 years and I`m thrilled with what I`ve seen! Never has a Finnish prospect been better. However I haven`t seen enough of the NA prospects to compare them! They have different competition and different playstyles! I`m thinking this is gonna be a sick top4 and I`m pretty confident there will hardly be a bust in theese guys...
