It's a tough toss-up. I'm starting to prefer Barkov over Drouin. I watched some recent footage of Barkov and he seems to have really improved his skating the last few months. He looked quick and had decent speed. I view him as a guy who has no weaknesses and should be at least a good 2nd line center. He's grittier than Couturier and better offensively. I think he could play next season. I think Barkov is 6'3". He could end up being huge, maybe 6-4"-5" and 225-230lbs.
