Hopefully he is willing to accept a role?

Higgins, like Malhotra, Torres, now Bernier all had top prospect written all over them, hit bottom and resurrected their careers by accepting roles and competing hard for them.

It's certainly worth the risk, Barker has shown more talent than any of the forwards mentioned above. But in interviews he mentions things like offensive role... He may get that, but my sense is that he has to accept and win a job as a role player before key roles will open up again?

edit; unless he can truly rush the puck??? And of course solve his own demons.

Yeah he can related to them, which I think is great. Guys like Higgins which A.V. mentioned who get bounced around have been great for us when we've been able to find where they stick. It'll be interesting to see if Barker can fix his career at this point.
