I really don’t think I need to tell you that all eyes will be on Conor Bedard in the upcoming NHL draft.
This phenomenon will be automatically selected first in the 2023 auction and the race for his services will get very tough by the end of the season.
Canadians are currently ranked eighth among the teams most likely to win the next lottery…
But CH is also a tiny ten points off last place in the NHL’s overall rankings, which gives him the best shot at getting the young sensation:
In fact, it’s pretty tight right now between the Blue Jackets, Ducks, Blackhawks, Sharks, Coyotes, Canucks, Flyers, Canadiens, and Blues. Who will come out on top?
Besides the Canucks, who acquired Filip Hronek earlier today, all of the other named clubs will be sold by Friday’s NHL trade deadline. Things can fall apart pretty quickly after that…
And with a narrow gap between first and ninth place, it’s safe to say that almost every team still has a chance of finishing overall in the NHL.
We know the Canadian’s schedule is tough between now and the end of the season. But the problem…is that the club is winning at the moment even if they are up against good teams. It would be surprising to see this trend continue for a while if the Canadians don’t have what it takes to have a good end to the season…
But the club will have to start losing one way or another if it is to get the most chances in the Conor Bedard lottery.
Should Martin St. Louis go all out to ensure his team loses all games by the end of the year? That’s not what I’m saying, no. This is not the most favorable for youth development and at the moment, this is the goal of the Canadian.
And anyway, Martin St. Louis isn’t one to associate himself with that idea because the coach wants to win, period. You just need to find a happy medium…
The next few weeks will be very exciting to watch and each game will become more important in this race for the first pick.

About John Klingberg: Team Carolina was interested. I think Seattle is looking forward to it, too.

He looks really good with his new gloves on.
A very quiet week around these parts…
We really had to dig deep to find 10 ready meals. 😉
