Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Mikhail Sergachev is proving to everybody how good he will be with his strong start this season. The 19-year-old Russian, acquired this summer from the Montreal Canadiens for forward Jonathan Drouin, has already 12 points in 15 games played. Saturday night, in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets, he showed all of his skills when he served a superb pass that led to Nikita Kucherov's 14th goal of the season. 

Sergachev, drafted eight overall by the Montreal Canadiens in 2016, started last season in the NHL but was sent back to his junior team, the Windsor Spitfires (OHL). Many believed that he would be the centerpiece of Montreal's defense for many years, but general manager Marc Bergevin decided to trade him to acquire Quebecois forward Drouin. Judging with Sergachev's contribution in Tampa Bay, and with their record of 11-2-2 this season, do you think Bergevin will regret this trade?
