Scott Wheeler in the Athletic does a very good write up on Malgin.  It hasn't been noted if Matthews had any input into this deal as he played with Malgin in Switzerland a few years back, so it is not outside the realm of possibility that he did mention Malgin as a skilled player to Dubas at some point.  After stealing Hyman I don't mind if he doesn't end up being Hyman lite.

He won't be Hyman lite. He's a skilled player. His agent, I believe is Petr Svboda said that while people expect him to say nice things about his client, this kid is going to surprise people in T.O.  Said it just wasn't a good fit in Florida. Kid has some really good skill. So we'll see. Apparently Dubas has shown interest in him for a while. Very low risk for both teams here and if it can push Goat out, I'm good. Hope it works out. D man is next!

Paul McFarland would’ve been a far better reference than Matthews.

Going by the Marchment for Malgin conversion rate, we should be able to get Barkov for Agostino.

Malgin's wearing 62 if anyone wanted to get their jersey done before tonight's game.

Eh... I think this is more a case of him technically not asking for a trade (his agent did), or him just not wanting to admit he asked for a trade in front of more reporters than he's seen in his life. Requesting a trade is still sorta frowned upon.

I think I was more disappointed in Marchment's play on his call ups than this trade. He had a pretty good path to playing on the bottom 6 based on bring something other couldn't, and he really didn't show anything.

Anyway, I hope that swiss nic petan can join forces with regular nic petan and make one larger petan, destroying villages and such.
