He does work hard on defense and he is very physical to me. Has a nice shot plays a decent two way game and will improve. He will mix it up at the net and on the boards and he can punish people. I see him maybe going at least three years for BC and barbashev might be on a faster track.

Personally I have tuch going in top 12.
I have Tuch going top 15, I'm a huge Barbashev fan, saw him 10 times playing alongside Jaskin, and probably 5 times alongside either Tkachev. He has some tremendous vision, a wicked shot, and he plays a 200 foot game. It's hard to see him drop to 19 though, but with the Russian factor, you never know.

Also I feel like we have to draft Tkachev in the later rounds, the guy might not be big, but he could be a very skilled top6 Fwd in 3-4 years. Might be a steal anywhere in the later rounds.
