I think Nate and maybe Jo is more ready.
Barkov should be in NHL imo but I don't think he'll getting 60+ points. 3rd line C with pk time would be ideal for him, and some pp time.
He hasn't played in NA, in smaller rinks too much. He has to adjust to travel and larger number of games, tempo of the game etc. more than Halifax duo.
Just my opinion though.
But that's just from helping the team next year.. He needs to fill out and improve first few steps to be star in NHL but he's very mature player. In that sense he might be most ready. I'm confident that he won't be making lot of rookie mistakes there.
