It's drifting Off topic here but it's applicable to the Preds choice this year. I think if Trotz gets input into the draft choice IE draft to his system not just BPA. My choice is Barkov but I bet that Trotz wants Nurse, Lindholm or Monahan.
For clarification, I have no issues with Legwand. He is fast, he does have good hands, and I also think he's an above average passer. I think part of his problems have stemmed from being more of a playmaker for an organization that has lacked good finishers. He is what he is at this point, and frankly, I find it hard to assess 894 games and 526 points as a failure by any measure.
Back to topic, there is no reason to think that Trotz would advocate any of those three over Barkov, considering Barkov is fairly well-praised for his strong two-way game as is.
