A bombshell just dropped about Matvei Michkov

BY MARCO    JUNE 24, 2023  (4:16 PM)
There's a certain frenzy, to say the least, mixed with fear when it comes to Matvei Michkov.

The Russian is an exceptional talent, but there are so many red flags that drafting him remains a risk, especially for a team like the Habs that wants to become competitive in the short term.

However, an idea has been floated that has the effect of a bombshell. What if Michkov was drafted in order to be traded?

That's what Jeff Marek and Elliotte Friedman were talking about. According to them, some teams simply can't pass up the Russian, even if it means trading him later.


"If you're general manager of the Arizona Coyotes, how can you not draft Michkov? It doesn't matter what communications you have with him and his camp. You're simply getting your hands on incredible value. At pick number six overall." - Jeff Marek



The team that selects him will therefore have the option of having an excellent player, or a very good bargaining chip.
