The shoulder is also nothing to worry about, the kid will be all healed up. I really think we need to draft barkov if he is available. Unless somehow Mack falls.
The player below was also great at the wjc tourney, here's one of his scouting reports

Quote:
He's a big fast winger, his main weapon is
his shot. It is fast, accurate, decpetive and quick. He's got loads of
potential but as his stats tell you, he has yet to reach it.
Another plus he has going for him is his defensive play.
Jani Rita never made in the NHL though.

I don't think Barkov will be the next Rita, just saying it can happen, it does happen and it will happen again.
