Inside today's Locked on Canadiens:
The Colorado Avalanche, and more importantly Artturi Lehkonen are Stanley Cup Champions as they knocked off the Tampa Bay Lightning in six games! The hosts discuss Lehkonen's impact on the Avs and if Lehkonen could have had a stronger impact on the Canadiens if he was utilized in a more productive way. Also, was the trade that sent him West a rare instance of both teams winning in the end?
Scott and Laura also discuss the lessons that Kent Hughes could learn from Joe Sakic as the Habs prepare for a painful rebuild in the coming year. Colorado was at one point the worst team in recorded history just over five years ago, and they were able to become a powerhouse in rapid fashion. Can Hughes and Jeff Gorton take some lessons from the Avs who built their Cup-winning team through smart drafting, development, and patience?
Finally, the 2022 Hockey Hall of Fame class was announced today, and despite multiple candidates being elected, both hosts feel as though the class is missing key pieces. Namely, the omission of Caroline Ouellette who was passed over this year, with the selection committee not even using both open spots for women's hockey. Who should headline next year's class, and does the selection process need overhauling?
