Magic statement from Slafkovsky, who almost believes he wasn't booed enough by CH fans

As we continue to dissect the very interesting interview recently offered by Juraj Slafkovsky, to the Slovak journalist Tomas Prokop, we have just come across another perfect answer.

Prokop invited Slafkovsky to comment on the booing he received before his selection. See his answer:

"I didn't get one negative reaction live, maybe just a few boos
during the draft, but it wasn't enough. I'm not surprised that they were
initially negative when Shane Wright was presented to them for three years as a
a clear draft pick and all of a sudden an unknown Slovakian came to them and the
the most hockey-minded city in the world chose him as their first pick. In time, it will

It's just perfect. He almost feels that he wasn't "booed enough" and he understands the situation perfectly. (he expected worse, much worse)

As he says (via a free translation from Slovak, to English), it's been three years that Canadiens fans have been presented with Shane Wright as the savior and as the first pick in the 2022 draft.

And all of a sudden, a Slovakian comes out of nowhere and "mugs" Shane Wright, to join the hockey club of the most passionate city in the world. He gets it.

Again, it says a lot about the kid's attitude and maturity.

His reading of the situation and especially his reaction to it show us that he seems to have the right approach to deal with the Montreal reality.

Slaf also came back on a beautiful story:
