Matvei Michkov was in high demand among Canadiens fans at the last draft, and many of them were disappointed to hear David Reinbacher's name mentioned.

First of all, we believe that the Austrian is a solid acquisition and a good selection nonetheless. What's more, with the new information that has come out, we like this choice even more.
Indeed, Michkov wanted to choose his team, and his choice came down to the Flyers. It all seems very clear now. The Russian even told the Coyotes outright that he would never play for them.

At 18, Michkov would already have a solid attitude problem. The team at danslescoulisses.com did their research and it seems to be the primary reason why the Habs wouldn't draft him.
Mathias Brunet also agrees. Not only would Michkov potentially have told the Habs that he doesn't want to be selected by them, he would have a serious attitude problem that doesn't "fit" with the CH philosophy.
"Montreal is willing to live with the idea of young Michkov having great offensive seasons in the NHL, when he arrives in North America, in 2026 or later, with the Philadelphia Flyers. But clearly, he didn't believe the boy would turn into a team player, respectful of authority and collective instructions, open to learning."
