Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:

The Locked on Canadiens crew are again joined by Russ and Rachel of Locked on Flyers to continue their discussion on the top prospects in the upcoming NHL Draft.

Up first is the likely first overall pick in Shane Wright, Scott and Laura are still adamant that Wright is the proper choice for the Montreal Canadiens in the upcoming draft. Russ also breaks down what makes Wright such a talented player, from his on-ice vision to his ability to be a leader for his OHL team off the ice as well. After that it's time for a discussion around Logan Cooley, who has the on-ice talent to be a challenger for a top three overall pick as well.

The hosts also discuss the pair of defenders in Simon Nemec and David Jiricek, and while Montreal isn't in a spot to draft one of them right now, they represent intriguing options if the Canadiens do decide to trade up. What makes Simon Nemec tick? How has Jiricek's physicality helped endear him to prospective teams in the draft?

To wrap it all up the four hosts debate the narrative surrounding Juraj Slafkovsky potentially going first overall over Shane Wright. Both Russ and Scott are in agreement that Slafkovsky has a ton of overall talent, but just isn't the fit the Canadiens need right now. They also debate the news that apparently Slafkovsky is open to playing centre, something he hasn't done in several years, evoking some memories of Jesperi Kotkaniemi's draft year.
