Sounds like I am. I was under the impression that he projected to a 1B-type as well (which was / remains Schenn and Couturier's ceiling)

I do think that they should (and will) take the best player available. I wasn't suggesting that the pass on Barkov if he's there. That's a no brainer to me, even with my slightly-uninformed assumption about his ceiling.

It more comes down to someone like Nurse vs. Monahan or Shinkaruk (EDIT: an Lindholm). In that situation, I could see a reasonable case to be made for selecting Nurse if the grade on the players is close.
