Some would say yes, and that they’ve finally learned to like David Reinbacher’s choice.
To this day, most CH fans wish they’d heard Carey Price say Matvei ……. rather than David …..
And those who have changed their minds are simply trying to convince themselves that everything’s going to be okay, when deep down they know that the CH could bitterly regret their choice.

Of course, that’s not what you hear about Mishkov every day – on the contrary.
But, as we all know, Grant McCagg likes to get wet, and he’s not afraid to do so.
He proved it once again a few days ago when he told Tony Marinaro’s Sick Podcast that, in his eyes, Michkov might not become an NHL MVP.
“I think he could be the next Yakupov. He doesn’t impress me. He’s not particularly fast. He’s not big. He’s not physical. He’s going to have a hard time making it in the NHL, especially in the playoffs.” – Grant McCagg
But when you think back to Yakupov, it’s true that it’s a scenario that shouldn’t be ruled out in Michkov’s case.
At the time of his draft, Yakupov was seen as the NHL’s next superstar, but in the end, he never managed to establish himself as an elite player in the league, and ended up playing in the KHL.
According to McCagg, it’s in the NHL that things could get ugly for the Russian.
According to McCagg, teams didn’t pass over Michkov just because he was questionable.
Teams haven’t passed over him just because of his character. Many see him doing 100+ points in the NHL, but there’s no guarantee he’ll even reach 80. I don’t see that happening.
– We’ll see this season.
