BUt yeah Im with you, to me Barrie is near untouchable
Maybe I just want to see it but I think Barrie has been much better overall than Shattenkirk was for us. Shatty was more of a goal scorer than Barrie has been so far but when I look at the points/game the difference isn't big. Especially when I take Barrie's slow start and the general low scoring of the team into consideration.
Defensively Barrie has been pretty unreal for a rookie.
Yeah, Barrie is untouchable at the moment. I hope Avs will keep Elliott, too. The kid has a lot of potential and it would be nice for our powerplay to have both of them in the lineup. If we get something really good as a return for O'Reilly plus Elliott I'll be okay with trading him, though.
