We really thought Shane Wright would be the first overall pick in 2022, but he ended up going fourth, behind Juraj Slafkovsky, Simon Nemec, and Logan Cooley.

As a Canadiens fan, I must admit that I am very satisfied with the team's choice of Slafkovsky, even though I was skeptical at first. Slaf is already a beast and his progress is very encouraging.
On the other hand, Wright has played only 17 games in two NHL seasons, spending the rest of his time in junior hockey in 2022-23 and in the AHL this season.
Moreover, the coach of the Kraken's farm team already had issues with Wright due to his attitude.
It so happens that Dan Bylsma has been promoted to head coach of the Kraken, which is not necessarily good news for Wright.
"I was watching a podcast with a Seattle journalist, and it seems that on several occasions on the ice during practices, Shane Wright threw tantrums at the American League coaches.

It worried them. At one point, Dan Bylsma gave an instruction and Wright looked at him like, 'What is this?!' It's a bit worrying. It looks like a prima donna attitude! I'm giving you both sides of the story, but the guy on the podcast really criticized him!" - Mathias Brunet

As Wright feels the call of the NHL finally coming, he will still be with the coach he looked down on in the American League.
The prospect must bitterly regret what happened and hope they can move forward. After all, the young man is more mature now.
