Segment 2: BIG Topic - Closing A Chapter, Opening the Next

On Friday night, the Montreal Canadiens ended a tumultuous season that included injuries, a pandemic, firings, hirings, numerous dubious records and a 32nd place finish.

The next step for the players was to clean out lockers and sit down for their exit meetings with management. 

The Montreal Canadiens' management has a great deal of work to do in the off-season including preparing for the NHL Entry Draft, signing their RFAs and new UFAs, and improving their salary cap situation by trading bad contracts. The off-season begins today!
