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.
Couldn't agree more, you really can not go wrong drafting a big skilled center. We have enough project prospects, in my opinion, rather go with someone who's almost guaranteed to make an impact sooner rather than later.
