Meh, I think your reading to much into it. If anything he saw the three guys right on top of him and figured there was probably some one towards the net and just threw it out there in front of(or he may have even been trying to put it on net for a rebound). Lucky play, but sure looked sweet.

Like l already said, there was definitely luck involved in the play, but I just don't think it was pure luck (The color guy Jukka Koivu didn't think so either). You don't see every player doing plays like that.

This is not the first one. And it won't be last.

Sasha said in the interview that Ahtola yelled to him that he's open and then Sasha just tried to threw the puck there. I think it went pretty well

So Barkov can pinpoint the exact place where his teammate is by sound? Talk about intangibles.

He said in interview after the game that he knew where Ahtola was because he was yelling there.

The play was combination of his vision, luck, passing skill and strength. Able to pass that accurate pass when someone is at your skin without even watching at the goal more than once is impressive. He did more impressive pass before this season which was an nolook spin pass to the backdoor but nieminen didn't score because he never expected pass like that. It wasn't lucky it seemed that Barkov had eyes on his back. Like in this play too but that backhand pass earlier was more impressive than this one which was amazing aswell.

It was a sick pass. He threw it tape to tape on purpose. That said he's lucky it got through and didn't hit someone along the way.

looked like he had a lot of luck there... but guess what? I love it because Barkov seems like he COULD be the player Finland has been missing... I've had enough of Finland shooting the puck 50 times into the goalies chest plate, not only do you need skill but sometimes a lucky play changes the game..

There is good sample of his very good skating, insane strength for 17 year old and great defensive game. Talks about his skating being one of his flaws can end it seems that it could become one of his main assets in near future.

With that pass the amount of Barkov's assists exceeds the amount of his goals for the first time this season. Only took 25 games.

I love how he spinned around the traffic to get to the puck in his own end
The goal was great, luck and skill sometimes result in this kind of goals.

There's 3 team I don't want Barkov going and they are Edmonton,Columbus and Toronto. I would love Barkov to be drafted by either Winnipeg or Islander or even montreal. Imagine Galy and Barkov together or even Tavares and Barkov.

Why no Leafs? He's exactly what they need.

I think any team would love him hahaha. I want him on the Canucks soooo bad. A 2nd line of Jensen - Barkov - Kassian in 3 years would be so good.

Is that a personal bias or is based on not wanting him to be smothered? While the Oilers acquiring another top 5 player would be a little unfair, I think he'd fit in great with the Oilers. Fans always talk of moving Gagner and getting a big, defensively responsible center and with Barkov they get that. They could turn around and turn Gagner+Nick Schultz/Whitney into a better defenseman or simply run three scoring lines.
