    Interesting video, apparently defensive plays only from Pettersson's first 5 games in the NHL. Damn impressive.

    Barkov as a guy that is coming off 96pts and is a 2way force is better now than pettersson who still hasnt hit ppg yet and its not that close

    future? Petersson needs to be a 40g/100+pt guy imho. I dont think he does it with any regularity

    Barkov and its not close. Petterson is getting massively overrated for his talents right now, lets wait until he can get close to barkov’s 92 point season. I think he has the potential, but stop.

    Exactly. Barkov currently blows Pettersson out of the water and even if Peterson progresses he likely won't reach Barkov's peak. And Barkov is still young enough to post a career year in the coming seasons.

    Barkov probably is better at every facet of the game right now. I think Pettersson can become better, but he didn't have the sort of upwards trajectory last season that one would have expected.

    He's a lot better than Barkov was at the same age so he has that going for him.

    Pettersson because he blows Barkovs hockey sense away and has winner genes. Barkov is a natural loser who will apologize after getting used as a butt-wipe.

    It was close this year. But Pettersson should be better going forward.

    Barkov now, Pettersson going forward.

    Meant to vote Barkov going forward and now

    Hes got the size while doing everything Pettersson does almost as well (offense defense), though Pettersson thinks the game faster

    I think Barkov is slightly better now but I think Pettersson will likely be better in the future.

    Pettersson had more goals and points than Barkov this season so not sure what you’re talking about. He has one year of being above PPG in his entire career so I don’t get why you’re acting like he’s a regular 95+ Center.

    Barkov isn't a 2-way force though. Pettersson currently does more to affect possession and limit goals against

    Well he did just have the better season. Barkov has the track record you usually want to look at even for a "now" pick, but when we're talking about a sophomore player, track record is likely going to underrate him.

    Barkov should probably prove that season wasn't a one-off before we use it in comparisons.

    More than a fair observation.

    Pettersson has that intangible “something” that the great ones have, and what causes them to lead their teams to championships.
    Barkov is a fantastic player, but does he have that same “something”?
