Connor Bedard has decided not to participate in the World Championships that are currently taking place. It's a shame because we could have seen him play against men. So we will have to wait until September at the training camp.

This decision is not unanimous and a debate has broken out between JiC and Tony Marinaro. If Tony has no problem with this decision, it is quite the opposite for Jean-Charles Lajoie.
"Adam Fantilli is there. I don't understand it, honestly."

Disagreeing with his colleague, Tony Marinaro immediately retorted this:
"Yikes, worse? What does he have to prove? When you fall on vacation at the end of June, will you come to work here? He wants to rest like everyone else!"

"It's a missed opportunity," Lajoie then replied.

"What if he gets hurt because he's done too much this year?", to reiterate Marinaro.

"Get hurt how? Breaking a leg? No, but what kind of injury would you want him to have? Do you really think something could happen to him that would jeopardize his career? It's true that the World Championship is really scary," insisted "JiC" in jest.

"I have absolutely no problem with his choice, me. He has always represented his country," Marinaro finally concluded.

It's safe to say that this decision by Bedard has people talking. While many believe the youngster is missing an opportunity to showcase himself against men, we believe he is preparing to come in and dominate in the NHL in his first year. We will know in the coming months if this was the right decision.
