It is an unanswerable question but I think most high picks will have their games played increased based solely on draft position and you can't account for it.
Barker had a good year in 2008-2009 season. 40 points in 68 games is fairly impressive. I wonder what happened to get him to fall of the face of the earth, maybe because playing in edmonton? Same thing happened to Ryan Whitney when he went to Edmonton. I guess Edmonton is where Decent defenseman go to be barely playing in the NHL later on.
