"There's no difference between guys on teams; you're all in this together." - Connor Bedard

Full quote:

"I think it's pretty unfair for you to say about rosters and talking about players and whatnot. For me, going to Regina, I had a lot of good
players with me and I don't think I was turning the franchise around. We were all trying to win games together. Wherever I end up, if I'm playing in the NHL, it'll be the same thing. There's no difference between guys on teams; you're all in this together. So I don't think I
would think (about] it at all like that.»

Connor Bedard is known for being very modest and not taking anything for granted, so when asked this question he definitely took some offence to it. Despite being the projected 1st overall pick, Connor Bedard believes that the Pats had a lot of great players with him which led to his success.
