"I dont think wed make this trade if we didnt think he had the ability to play center.
The 5-10, 195-pound winger fits the mold of the quick, agile modern player, and he brings some grit as well.
He's wheeling and dealing for his job this summer, so you can't fault the guy for trying, but add this trade to the heap of head-scratchers he has pulled off during five seasons in Montreal, all of which never seem to address the club's biggest.Last season, the 23-year-old Winnipeg native ranked third on the Coyotes with 45 points (9g 36a) in 82 games.Internationally, Domi won gold at the 2015 iihf World Junior Hockey Championship.As for Domi, Chayka said: Max is a talented player and a good person.Well, the Arizona Coyotes and the Montreal Canadiens made a splash one week ahead of the 2018 NHL Entry Draft and a couple of weeks away from free agency as the Coyotes sent Max Domi to Montreal in exchange for, alex Galchenyuk.Thats something frustrated Canadiens fans are getting grosse escort paris used.A natural center, Galchenyuk has played on the wing throughout the majority of his tenure with the Canadiens, despite the teams struggles up the middle.As to which team came out on top on the value chart, let's dive.
