This week on the podcast, Marc Dumont from Eyes on the Prize joins me to do some playoff predictions for the second round, and then we go deep into what went wrong with the Canadiens this year, and whether they can recover from it.

We also referenced an article on EOTP from Kyle Medeiros on the Canadiens’ inability to break in drafted players, which you can read here.

On today’s podcast Sportsnet’s Eric Engels joins the show to talk about the Montreal Canadiens post trade deadline and coaching change.

For a good portion of the podcast Eric and I discuss Max Pacioretty’s evolution as a hockey player and a leader, and what that means for the Canadiens going forward.

We also talk about why the Habs’ powerplay still looks awful, why Alexei Emelin keeps getting chances to play, whether Charles Hudon will get the chance he’s earned, and why Eric is wrong about pecan pie.

It’s a short one this week because he’s a busy man, but former NHL player and current NHL Network analyst Mike Johnson joins the podcast to talk about some issues in hockey and hockey coverage.

Mike and I discuss one of the hotter topics in Montreal over the last couple seasons, the issue of leadership and how that’s covered in the media. Is Max Pacioretty a good  leader now? Was he a bad leader before? How much does the media know about what actually goes on in locker rooms.

Further to that point, we talk about how much locker room chemistry actually impacts performance, and whether leaders are that important in general.

From there, we talked about how analytics might be implemented for players through coaching and preparation, and asked whether that could mess with the heads of players.

We couldn’t get to questions from listeners today because of the time Mike had available, but he did give out a couple Netflix suggestions.
