Bedard was also asked about how he felt about the Oilers ahead of his first career game against the historic franchise. He seemed to indicate that he never felt the Oilers were in danger of missing the playoffs.

"I thought it was pretty funny the first 10 games of the season seeing people freak out. They've been one of the best teams in the league the past few years. I don't think it is a surprise that they are doing what they are doing now."
