The Montreal Canadiens Traded For A Less Talented Player In Max Domi

from Jack Todd at the Montreal Gazette,

I haven’t seen a whole lot of the Arizona Coyotes the past couple of seasons — perhaps because they were rancid.

Most of what I recall of Max Domi dates back to the world juniors, when he was pretty good — and so flashy that he made P.K. Subban look like a shrinking violet. Let’s just say that if cockiness was talent, Max Domi would have been Connor McDavid.

He isn’t.

Perhaps a couple of tough years in the desert have taught the young man how to be humble. We’ll see. He has some grit, but the younger Domi is more than just a gritty winger. Or should be. He has to be better than he showed in Arizona the past two seasons. He has skills and you know he’s going to show up, which you didn’t know with Galchenyuk from one game to the next.

What Domi doesn’t have is what Alex Galchenyuk has: Premium Grade A National Hockey League talent.
