I get that Barkov would be an upgrade but that's not how you build a hockey team.
Unless Calgary all of a sudden amasses incredible wealth on LW, while it remains poor in other locations, where Sven becomes expendable (kind of like the Pitts Defense situation this year); you never move a blue chip for another, especially when you're weak in all categories.

If Calgary drafted a couple wings this year, and all of a sudden they looked like they have first line upside; and our only real top pair defense prospect remains Brodie and Center remains weak as hell (Because we expect Jankowski to be ready in half a decade ) then yes, move one of the depth wingers to fix a major hole.

Aside from that, using Sven to move down in this draft is ridiculous.
