Kopitar so far has a had one 81 point season and it doesn't look like he will ever hit 90, how is Barkov going to have a ceiling of 90? 70 would be more realistic at this point.
It also depends on what team you play on in regards to points which is something people keep ignoring. I'm willing to bet Kopitar would hit 90 points at least once by now for example on Philly. They just play a different game. 1 point on team A isn't always 1 point on team B, and some teams hide defensive mistakes better than others etc. Teams have different identities that lead to different outcomes and how a certain player is perceived. A bit off topic but you can carry on now.
