Former NHL Great P.K. Subban Blasted After Interesting Connor Bedard Take

Published October 6, 2023 at 8:50

Connor Bedard has clearly been taking the NHL by storm, and without even stepping on the ice for a regular season game, the expectations for the 18-year old are through the roof.

Unlimited potential


After tearing up the WHL to the tune of 243 points over the past two seasons, he was unanimously the No. 1 overall pick in the 2023 NHL Draft, a spot that was gifted to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Now, after some pre-season action, Bedard has shown he's more than capable of competing in the NHL, with many expecting him to step in as the leader of this Chicago team as they look to make a major statement in 2023-24.

Wild takes

Unsurprisingly, this early success has led to plenty of intriguing takes, with none more eyebrow raising than this quote from former NHL great P.K. Subban.

If you don't think he's a top 10 player in the league right now in terms of skill, you don't get a seat at my table. Period.

There's little doubt that Bedard has the talent to backup the insane expectations, but to get comments like this so soon from an NHL veteran is an interesting spot to be in, and it's safe to say the comment section let Subban know about it.

"Hasn't played a single game yet... PK is off his rocker."

"They gonna ruin this man's career before it even starts lol."

"theres a reason PK isnt playing anymore" - Comment on the Instagram post

Ultimately, it doesn't matter what anyone says, as Bedard has to prove himself on the ice, but it's still fun to watch former players have takes like this, especially knowing how tough it is to make the transition to the NHL level.

"Could you imagine being fresh out of high school with full grown adults putting all of these insane expectations on you?"

"The same people hyping him up like crazy are gonna be calling him a bust when he doesn't put up 80 points his rookie season"

"How has literally everything Subban has said since retirement been wrong?"

"Gonna be an empty table." - Comments on the Instagram post.
