    Montreal Canadiens rebound vs Blue Jackets: would the Kirby Dach route translate to Kent Johnson?

    Montreal Canadiens rebound vs Blue Jackets: would the Kirby Dach route translate to Kent Johnson?

    The Montreal Canadiens were able to rebound after their abysmal showing against Buffalo by beating the Columbus Blue Jackets 3-1, thanks to some lineup adjustments by Martin St Louis and the spectacular play of Samuel Montembeault. Laura joins Jay Forster for another crossover with Locked On Blue Jackets. First, we discuss the game itself and how it unfolded. In the second segment we discuss Kirby Dach’s move to the wing and how it has given him opportunities to shine and discuss whether Columbus should explore that more thoroughly for Kent Johnson. Finally, we discuss David Savard’s strengths and how he should be used to maximize what he can bring to the Habs.

    Can the Montreal Canadiens rebound from the loss vs Sabres? Plus: thoughts on Jeff Gorton's thoughts

    Can the Montreal Canadiens rebound from the loss vs Sabres? Plus: thoughts on Jeff Gorton's thoughts

    The Montreal Canadiens, for the first time this season, have turned out an utterly uninspiring loss to the Buffalo Sabres. What went wrong in this game? We have some ideas. With a game in Columbus coming up immediately following, will the Habs be able to rebound? What will bring back our confidence in this team? In our final segment, we discuss our thoughts on Jeff Gorton's thoughts on the Sick podcast with Tony Marinaro - can we read between the lines on what he said about Kaiden Guhle? What about Martin St Louis? How about Cole Caufield's contract?

    Kent Hughes discusses the ongoing Montreal Canadiens rebuild, did Dominique Ducharme nearly ruin Cole Caufield?

    Kent Hughes discusses the ongoing Montreal Canadiens rebuild, did Dominique Ducharme nearly ruin Cole Caufield?

    Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:

    First up, the Habs meet the Sabres on Tuesday night which means it's game preview time! Can the Montreal keep their good vibes going from Saturday's electric win over the Flyers, or will the still slumping Buffalo Sabres continue to be a thorn in the side of the Habs?
    Also in the news around the Canadiens hockey world is the newly released book from longtime equipment manager Pierre Gervais, and it includes a devastating look at Dominique Ducharme's time as Canadiens head coach. From the team apparently expecting Luke Richardson to be named coach instead to not telling players such as Cole Caufield that they weren't playing until the last minute, there is a lot for the hosts to unpack.
    The Montreal Canadiens front office appeared on a pair of podcasts in the last week, a great display of transparency as the Montreal Canadiens continue through their rebuild. Scott and Laura take a peek at the appearance by Kent Hughes first and examine what he's appeared to have learned as GM of the team so far, and how he wants to push this team to the next level. There's also plenty of insight on how Vinny Lecavalier joined the team, and how he was very nearly a New York Ranger as well!

Love the chemistry between the hosts!

Hello from Colorado

This is one of the best in the network. These two combine energy, passion, and information. There are a number of m/f combos in the network and these two along with Flyers and Cross Check are as good as m/m combos.
Really enjoy it!
