The hype is indeed getting excessive (that's what you get with Finnish prospects since some of us tend to get a bit crazy over them) but Barkov deserves all the extra hype he's getting over what Granlund ever got. Despite having a bit worse PPG ratio (0.9 vs. 0.93 while being half a year younger) Barkov's overall game is far more impressive than that of Granlund in his pre-draft year.
