Yeah, there's no question Barkov would be the preference. The question is whether or not we're going to have a chance to draft him. I'd be shocked if he was on the board at #5 so a bottom 4 finish is a must (I know Nichushkin is ranked higher on some lists, but there's no way he goes that early).

I just hope that the Oilers are able to make a trade into the 3/4 spot to draft him. Despite our horrible play of late, I just don't see us finishing lower than 6. And Barkov will be long gone by then, guaranteed.
