We know about Connor Bedard.
What other names can potentially challenge him?
Don't really think anyone will challenge him but Brayden Yager is likely #2 behind Bedard. Then Kalan Lind, Bauer Dumanski and Riley Heidt are likely 1sts among some other talented kids from Sask.
Tanner Molendyk - D should be a big riser, 1st round talent. I imagine he goes to CSSHL but with Major Bantam next year it could be a tougher sell?
I truly think Yager can make a run at him (Bedard). Bedard shows a lack of defensive skills and I found him as the F3 a lot of times. Great goal scorer and the game is a lot about scoring goals now. I wonder if it helps him to play in CSSHL team where he is the best player on his team and they build a power play around him essentially. There is also a lot of rumblings that if their team is in the "east Div" he isn't breaking any scoring records. A lot of high scoring games in the west.
Does Bedard even have a chance of getting eps into the WHL now that Savoie got denied. Is Bedard better than Savoie.
In my opinion you get exceptional status if you can be among the best players on your WHL team.
Not because you can survive on the team. I don't think Savoie would have been a top line player in WHL next year. Can Bedard be top line WHL in his draft year?
Mcdavid was top on his team in scoring as 15 year old... That is exceptional... Many players could play third and fourth line as 15 year olds.
Savoie is probably good enough to play in the top 6 for quite a few teams next year.
Why he wasn't given status is a real mystery to me.
To early to tell with Bedard.
