Barbashev was one of the team’s most promising prospects a couple years ago, but now he’s just one of the many depth players on the Blues. He’s only 22, but unfortunately for him he won’t get much of a shot in the team’s top nine. He’ll fill in nicely when players get injured, but when the team is healthy I don’t see him getting much playing time on the top three lines.
Him and Sundqvist will compete for the fourth line center position, and he may also see some time as a fourth line winger. Because of this I don’t see him putting up big numbers this season.
