Barkov lacks foot speed, which is somewhat of a deterrent for me. His size, skill and vision compensate for it though. Still, if Monahan is on the board at 5, I wouldn't turn him down since we have plenty of players with skill and vision in Stamkos, Marty, Conacher, Killorn and Vinny, but lack the two-way capabilities and competitiveness of a prospect like Monahan. Also, Monahan's offensive instincts are quite good and he also has the size, skating ability and vision.

I see Monahan as the ideal second line center behind Stamkos.
