Major twist regarding Kent Hughes and Matvei Michkov: it completely changes the situation

In the last few minutes, the journalist Nicolas Cloutier made a big revelation regarding Kent Hughes' true intentions concerning Matvei Michkov.

Cloutier, who has excellent sources, mentioned the following:

"I'll tell you one thing. The Canadiens were never interested in drafting Michkov. It was never part of the plan, but Kent Hughes always wanted to keep his cards close to his chest. He wanted to maintain hope, they even took the trouble to meet with him knowing very well they weren't going to draft him.

I think it was a poker game by Kent Hughes because they had to make other teams believe that they might draft another player (for trade discussions)."

So, Hughes apparently just misled everyone. Wow. He was never interested in selecting Matvei Michkov, which is honestly quite surprising.
