Alexander Romanov gets solidly embarrassed and destroyed on social media

Of those trades, we won't soon forget the one that spiced up the 2022 NHL Draft in Montreal last July. Hughes traded Romanov to the Islanders for the 13th overall pick, who in turn was traded to Chicago to acquire Kirby Dach.
Not only is Dach giving us a lot more than we expected from the start of the campaign, Romanov is far from being a fan favorite. Indeed, many wonder how Lou Lamoriello managed to part with the 13th overall pick to acquire a player like Romanov.
It's when you read the publication's comments that you realize that many people agree with this statement. According to them, Romanov is a solid defenseman who gives good hits, but it ends there. He's clearly not worth a first-round pick and Lamoriello got a pretty good run on this one.
As Canadiens fans, we can honestly say that we don't miss the former number 27. The CH's defense is very tough and his style of play was replaced quite easily by Kent Hughes. We loved Romanov, but again, we have to admit that Hughes looks like a genius in this deal.
