Who’s the greatest captain in NHL history?

Matvei Michkov’s name will continue to cause a stir until he plays his first game in the National League.
It’s a reality we have to accept.
Basically, it’s hard to know how he really behaves, because NHL teams haven’t really had time to get to know him.
His compatriots, on the other hand, have always had good things to say about him, and it’s no different today.
Some of his former team-mates, his former coaches and even some of the players who played against him have “come to his defense”, reminding us that he is talented on the ice and has tremendous potential:
But some Montreal journalists went looking for the 2-3 hidden people who didn’t want to be named who said he was a bad person… I really feel like it’s a generation of CH fans who will suffer from this bad decision… 🤷🏻♂️ https://t.co/km6roJ6oaa

But until then… there’s not much point in justifying anything. The teams that have turned their noses up at him have done so for a particular reason, and we all agree that no one can change that.
On the other hand, his compatriots would have seemed a little crazy to “pitch” him under the bus, given that the youngster is already a star in Russia.
They all support each other, and that’s fine. But the fact that he’s talented on the ice has nothing to do with the fact that he might have an attitude problem, and therein lies the nuance.
In any case. I think, in all honesty, we’ve come full circle.
– Ah well.
Opening night of the 2023-24 season will conclude with a #StanleyCup banner-raising night in Las Vegas as the @GoldenKnights and Kraken meet in a matchup between the NHL’s two newest clubs.#NHLStats: https://t.co/M0yzkMZkME pic.twitter.com/itY7RPEUAT
