At the World Juniors, Team Canada lost 3-2 to Czechia, who came back from a two-goal deficit to defeat them 3-2 in overtime, with Jakub Stancl closing out the game.

There is already a rush to blame Connor Bedard and the Chicago Blackhawks for the loss.

As opposed to blaming Team Canada as a whole for its failure to perform in key situations, Barstool blames Bedard.




Barstool, however, blames Connor Bedard alone instead of the Chicago Blackhawks for bringing him to the big leagues.

Bedard, who is currently making waves as the points leader for the Chicago Blackhawks, has ascended rapidly through the ranks, leaving an indelible mark on the sport. Bedard's exclusion from the World Juniors stems from the tournament's strict eligibility criteria, barring active NHL players from participating.

He was not able to participate in the World Juniors tournament because he is already in the NHL, which prevents him from playing for the Juniors.

The tournament itself indeed has strict exclusionary rules that limit participation by NHL players, but I believe Barstool in bad faith forgot to consider that.
