    Habs vs. Leafs reactions, previewing the Jets, and ranking the hottest NHL coaches

    The Montreal Canadiens and Toronto Maple Leafs played the most preseason game of all time, with Toronto having to play two forwards on defence for most of the game. While Montreal fell in their second preseason game there's plenty to look at from the game. Scott and Laura break down their standouts from the game, including first round pick Filip Mesar, and who could be doing a bit more overall.
    The Habs have little time to rest as well, as they head to Winnipeg to play the Jets on Thursday evening. The Jets have released their lineup, so who can we expect to suit up for Montreal? Scott and Laura discuss some of the things they'd like to see from the team as they play their third game out of four this week.
    Finally, there's a lot of discussion around a highly controversial ranking of NHL coaches, naturally the hosts wade in with their takes on who is actually the most attractive coach in the league right now.

    Montreal Canadiens storylines, award odds, and more for the upcoming NHL season

    Montreal Canadiens storylines, award odds, and more for the upcoming NHL season

    Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:

    Locked on Canadiens has teamed up with Jack Bond of Paramount Sports for a unique season preview for the Montreal Canadiens!

    While the Habs were always going to be longshots to win much of anything this year, just how long are the odds for the team to win the Stanley Cup? Or the Atlantic Division? What is the actual over/under on the points they're expected to earn this year? We break it all down, and listen to the reasoning behind why the team is more than likely going to finish at the bottom of the standings again.
    However, it's not all bad as the Habs have a couple of potential surprises for smart bets this year as well. If the team overachieves at all, could Martin St. Louis steal some Jack Adams votes? Also, can Cole Caufield continue his impressive form from last year and top the 30 goal plateau?

    Who will surprise, and can the Montreal Canadiens take the first major strides forward after a disastrous season last year? Tune in to today's Locked on Canadiens season preview with Paramount Sports to find out!

    Three Up, Three Down from Montreal Canadiens Training Camp

    Three Up, Three Down from Montreal Canadiens Training Camp

    Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:

    The return of semi-meaningful games is upon us once again! Scott and Laura take a look at the Montreal Canadiens first game of the preseason against the New Jersey Devils. It's expected that Juraj Slafkovsky and Kirby Dach will make their Canadiens debuts, so what are the hosts expecting going into the game?

    With the first week of training camp in the books, who makes the Three Up and who makes the Three Down lists? It's still early so plenty of players have a chance to switch spots on the list. There's of course praise for Owen Beck as usual, but also some other lesser known prospects have made their statement, in addition to several vets looking to bounce back.

    Who needs to step up going into actual preseason games? The hosts have their picks there as well!

    Montreal Canadiens mailbag: Josh Anderson's trade value, waiver pickups, Arber Xhekaj comparisons, and more!

    As the Montreal Canadiens training camp gets underway and we start looking forward to NHL preseason games, we answer Habs mailbag questions such as: what is Josh Anderson's trade value? Who is Arber Xhekaj comparable to in the NHL? Will he be able to leapfrog other defensemen to make the NHL? Should the Habs look to pick players off of waivers given their priority position in the standings? Did Dominique Ducharme do enough to explain Cole Caufield slump back when he was still the coach? And more.

    What to expect what you're expecting your team to be bad

    What to expect what you're expecting your team to be bad

    Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:

    With the NHL preseason just around the corner, and the Montreal Canadiens expected to not be very good by all accounts, the hosts wondered how they could help to prepare fans for the next season.

    Enter JD Young of Locked on Sharks, who covers a team that was recently going through the same painful rebuilding steps in recent seasons. Scott and Laura want to pick his brain about what fans can do to get through what is likely to be a tough season in Montreal.

    Is it watching prospects? Is it focusing on building for the long-term? Is it getting EVEN MORE draft picks? JD helps the hosts figure it all out and more!
