    after watching that Final, i just cant get over teh skill of these kids today, and teh shot that they have, its insane what they can do. yes the sticks are more flexible for teh shot speed, but teh accuracy and the placement is nuts.

    that goal that was scored by CAN over teh Russian goalies shoulder was an absolute snipe and he had seconds to get that off into the tiny window..just insane!

    Bedard looked a 17 year old out there. Just imagine how he will look at this tournament next year and the year after. He and Wright are going to lead the way forward for Canada moving forward at each level.

    Yes... we are going to be spoiled as Canadians over the next few years.

    All of our other 'exceptional status' players have had many years between them. Having two back to back is like having Crosby and McDavid play together at the World Juniors... wow!

    If they do get to play together at U20 (far from a guarantee) the closest thing in history I can think of it reminding me of is Stamkos and Tavares in '08.

    Has anyone watched Bedard play? We just had a meeting with someone who lives in Regina and says that he is a very talented player... but he is extremely lazy without the puck.

    Guy is insane level of skill... I'd be much more interested in what his work ethic is in practice and outside the rink. To me that would be more telling... When you can single handedly win a game, motivation isnt the same.

    He maybe looks lazy, but I doubt he is. funny how people will say stuff like that. Coach Paddock wouldn't let that slide

    Yeah… I once did a project at post office in Brantford and the guy that showed me around kept talking about how Gretzky was a horrible person and how his brother was much better hockey player

    A friend of mine knows one of the refs that ref in the WHL and in discussion with him these are some of the comments that they had on Bedard:

    - his shot is the real deal - compared it to Auston Matthews

    - Regina doesn't have much for complimentary players so at times he tries to do too much

    - When he gets shut down by top defensive teams, he loses his cool pretty easily. When other teams D are shutting him down, they can get under his skin and get him off his game.
