I guess this is Locke's 3rd Pre-Season with the Canadiens. I'm kind of interesed in him since he seems to have the same success in the OHL as Shremp and apparently the same types of weaknesses (Speed, size, 5 on 5). Has Locke been impressive on the powerplay in any of the exhibition games he has played in, in the past? Has he put up decent point totals in his pre-season games the past two years?
A small player like Locke has to work on his speed or he will never make the NHL...if he works on his speed then he has to worry about being able to take the body which i dont know if he can....from what i hear he still doesnt have the speed so his time might be running out
Im not convinced, I rather think he is AHL material for life but if he end up being a Leafs, It sure is a great thing for the Habs!
don't be so sure , a lot of the same things were said about doug gilmour and look how he turned out . he might find his niche in the NHL , he just oozes natural talent like gilmour and i hope he can find his defensive game first and parlay that into a productive NHL career just like dougie did , stranger things have happened , i just hope it does'nt happen for him with the leafs .
