Episode 844 - Can the Montreal Canadiens learn anything from the Toronto Maple Leafs playoff loss?
Inside today's Locked on Canadiens
Another year, another disappointing playoff exit for the Toronto Maple Leafs, this time at the hands of the Florida Panthers in five games. With the Canadiens embarking on a rebuild, centered around their young talent, are there lessons to be learned by Kent Hughes and the Habs following Toronto's loss? Scott and Laura discuss building a lineup that is balanced, and trying to keep both young talent under contract, but not overpaying so badly that you're handcuffed in the long term.
Then, it's time for listener questions!
The hosts debate if they would try to acquire Conor Garland from the Vancouver Canucks if it meant the Canadiens would also receive another first round pick, similar to the Sean Monahan trade last year. Also, with the Rangers in salary cap trouble next year, could another first overall pick find himself with an offer sheet from the Canadiens? Finally, is the idea of picking Matevi Michkov controversial because everyone has different ideas of a rebuild timeline?
