    Power Rankings: Playoff Edition. Avs at #1. Who's the Best of the Rest?

    Power Rankings: Playoff Edition. Avs at #1. Who's the Best of the Rest?

    ***Disclaimer. These rankings were voted on and released prior to the games played on Wednesday night***
    Welcome to another Thursday edition of Locked on NHL where we dive into the Power Rankings of the playoff teams remaining. The Colorado Avalanche are no surprise at the top of the standings, but where the regular season saw things get pretty similar as the year went on, we have teams in spaces we didn't they they would be at this stage of the post season. Case in point, the Pittsburgh Penguins find themselves at the #2 position right now while the team who was near the top of the rankings for most of the season, the Florida Panthers, find themselves at #5 thanks to a Washington Capitals teams giving them everything they have.

    Avalanche sweep, Calder nods, Western Conference mayhem

    Avalanche sweep, Calder nods, Western Conference mayhem

    As expected, the Colorado Avalanche swept the Nashville Predators. Despite both teams losing their starting goaltenders, the Avalanche still looked dominant while the Predators struggled to score. It's the outcome everyone expected, but we talk about Predators goaltender Connor Ingram, his path back to the NHL, and why it's disappointing that the team couldn't win one for him. Next, Sarah and Jess look at the nominees for the Calder, including Trevor Zegras of the Anaheim Ducks. We also review the criteria to make a player eligible for the award, since one nominee has raised a few eyebrows. Finally, we check in on the remaining Western Conference teams and their playoff races.

    Live Draft Lottery Reaction Round Table ft. the local hosts of the Locked On NHL Network

    Live Draft Lottery Reaction Round Table ft. the local hosts of the Locked On NHL Network

    Following the Montreal Canadiens and New Jersey Devils' big wins in the NHL Draft Lottery on Tuesday night, join a group of the local hosts from the Locked On NHL network for a full breakdown of the winners and losers of the night, with plenty of analysis on Shane Wright, Logan Cooley, Juraj Slafkovsky, Matthew Savoie and the rest of the top-billed prospects coming into the 2022 NHL Entry Draft. Laura Saba (Locked On Canadiens), Robyn Leaño (Locked On Coyotes), Erica Lindsay Ayala (Locked On Kraken) and Russ Cohen (Locked On Flyers) begin with some talk about the movement in the top-5 of the draft, and what makes Shane Wright such a awesome prospect. Should the Seattle Kraken, Philadelphia Flyers and Arizona Coyotes be distraught after missing out on the top pick? Or are there plenty of great selections to be had in the 2-through-5 range? And how will the results of the lottery shape what lies ahead for the teams at the top of the draft board this summer? Plus, which teams should be most upset about their lack of lottery luck? Will the Detroit Red Wings EVER move up in the lottery? Or will their slow rebuild continue on forever?

Good Podcast, heavily opinionated.

The national podcasters do a great job of covering NHL issues and topics as a whole. They often also talk about individual teams and how they are doing. Although they only talk about teams they like. For example their coverage of the winter classic was only discussing the Minnesota wilds loss and zero coverage of the St. Louis Blues victory. And their power rankings are quite biased as well only placing teams they particularly like in top 10 slots as opposed to looking at the numbers and stats to decide power rankings. All in all they are very professional and there aren’t really any better NHL coverage posdcasts so give them a listen but I can’t give it 5 stars.
