Yes, but that's not the first point. First point is that Barkov is very good skater, not only his size player, he's not that explosive or fast in skating straight, but he is good using his skates. When we compare Barkov 6'3 and MacKinnon 5'11, then MacKinnon is midget, more explosiveness, but Barkov is HUGE 17 years old player.
I see also lot of Lennart Petrell Barkov's skating now when Barkov is 17 and Lennart 10 years older. Many says that Lennart is horrible skater and slow when he was young, but he was just big guy. He wasn's just as good skater than Barkov is now then but i think there is some similar thing when people talk Barkov's skating here.
