size matters, when all else is equal... no doubt... however, the problem is determining exactly *when* "all else is equal"

speaking of size, somebody said monahan is the same size as barkov, and i just wanted to point out that he is 1 inch shorter and about 10-15 pounds lighter right now... not a huge deal, but worth mentioning

i agree that the finnish development system is not as reliable as the canadian system, but i think barkov's skill level is a step above monahans and he is a little larger as well... additionally, he plays the same solid 2-way game that monahan does... the only area where i don't have barkov ahead of monahan is on faceoffs, simply because i haven't heard anything about this facet of barkov's game and monahan is supposed to be exceedingly good at them
