Cool. Pot meet kettle. Unless you are doing the old shampoo advert trick and extrapolating the "fun" from this thread and projecting it to another board.

So highly thought of recent 3rd overall picks are common? The player described as having the best hands and offensive upside in the draft is common? Shall we jump into the time machine back to 2007 and declare that Patrick Kane is simply a common type of player.

High end offensive players are a very rare commodity. Since Bure, how many players/prospects like Drouin have we had?

Which doesn't certify Drouin as common or soft.

Drouin and Huberdeau don't play the same game exactly. Drouin has better hands and is a little more dynamic in my opinion. Plus, the inference here is that having two high scoring wingers who play a "similar game" is supposedly a bad thing.

I am a big proponent of Barkov, but you don't need to unfairly discredit one player to praise another. Barkov and Drouin are both exceptional prospects who will likely be very good NHL players.

Always one or the other syndrome.

I know this is going to happen but I really hope that people don't put too much stock into what Barkov does this first year. I feel he is going to struggle some. He played a long season and then get injured, hasn't really had a full offseason, and now has to come to a new country and play in the NHL. It is going to be very difficult for him to adjust, especially with no offseason. Next season is when we will be able to more accurately judge Barkov.

Thank you for taking the time to analyze my nonsense posts.

I can now truly sleep well at night knowing you've taken the time to respond to me and provide me with your world-class opinion.

Sorry it's just hard understanding stuff through text sometimes

But thank you. I was obviously being a little over the top on purpose. I read nothing but posts about Barkov busting and being garbage so I wanted to say the exact about Drouin instead.

I know the kid is really talent. 3rd overalls aren't busts anymore typically. It just seems any sort of satire or foolishness cannot be tolerated around here I guess?

Glad to be of service.

I'm on call. Just text "Doh" to 0780............

edit ; Again, you fight the very stupid logic with the same very stupid logic, then call Tampa fans idiots for doing exactly what you're doing against the original lalala land post.

Yet you get mad when it's pointed out?

I think he might struggle a bit the first several games, although not necessarily, but as the season wears on, I think he'll start coming into his own.

Hey guys any thoughts on whether Barkov will be playing with Huberdeau this year? I've read that he is slotted to play between Boyes and Versteeg at the moment.

I am thinking of taking a flyer on him as a keeper pick in my fantasy league.

Sorry if this has already been covered in the thread, I browsed around a bit but I couldn't find anything concrete.

George Richards, our beat writer, just put the lines from today's practice on twitter and huby and Barkov were on the same line. So who knows...

Versteeg-Barkov-Boyes played together towards the end of pre-season. Yesterday and today at practice, top 6 was:

Versteeg - Goc - Flash
Huby - Barkov - Boyes

Me likey. I think Barkov should be with Huby he needs someone else who can slow down the game like he does and Huby will be perfect for that.

Both the Avs and us got amazing young centers. I feel and always felt like it was a win-win. I was never sour about having the #2 pick.

And Seth Jones was +2 tonight in his debut, logging 18:35 mins in a 4-2 Nashville loss, these kids all seem like they're going to be special....but more importantly, Congrats to Barkov!

A rintakuva for you:



Looks like some of you could work your native Finnish as well.


There's a bit of likeness, actually... let's hope it's not an omen.
