All eyes are on Connor Bedard for this year's draft, but is he really the best prospect?

There's no way of knowing right now, but one thing's for sure: he's got all the talent in the world, plus he's a good kid.
However, renowned rookie expert Scott Wheeler had something major to say about Matvei Michkov that he's never said before.
"The talent is special. To me, he's the best Russian prospect since 2004, when Alexander Ovechkin and Evgeni Malkin were picked back-to-back. He's genuine. He's the kind of player who can have an easy 100-point season at the peak of his career. I've never said that about any other prospect, whether it's McDavid or Bedard, so it's a testament to his true talent. He's going to be a real star in the league."

Wow! So that means Mishkov could be out sooner than we think, and the Habs wouldn't have a chance to select him. However, if the Russian is still available at No. 5, it could be a steal for Kent Hughes and the CH.
