Connor Bedard has been absolutely spectacular since joining the NHL. In fact, he has excelled everywhere he has played, justifying his selection as the first overall pick.

However, fans and analysts are beginning to identify weaknesses in his game, sparking discussions. One sequence highlights concerns about his defensive play, which appears to be lacking.

"What is Connor Bedard doing?
1. Awful turnover attempting to be fancy
2. The back check then leaves his assignment wide open in front of the net and he decides to skate around in a circle. As a Center, play center.

His Defense is a major issue that needs to be addressed.."



At just 18 years old, Bedard is highly productive for his age. Can't we let him learn to walk before expecting him to run?

While defensive play is crucial, it's likely he will adjust and improve over time. Nevertheless, it must be acknowledged that the highlighted sequence is not flattering.
