He's 17 years old, he scored at a .500 pace as a 16 year old in SM-Liiga... what other past production do you want to see? He's going to be a big, productive center. And I think Trotz is smart enough to see that he's got Fisher, Legwand and Gaustad on the 2-4 lines and doesn't need Barkov to come in and be a shutdown guy, if he's defensively responsible as advertised, then that will probably be enough with just a little refinement.

Of course Lindholm could be the pick anyway, so who knows.
