From his own words, he wanted Q players but they were all gone....
Having said that....tons of Q players ended up elsewhere after we had pick somebody.
But he also stated clearly in that interview that the American development program is quite great and that he respects it a lot. That the pool of prospects is greater in those leagues. So let's get use to it. It will be where we'll end up selecting our players as long as he's amongst us.
Not this year. The first round was barren of Q players. Ironically, The Habs did get a player from the Q with their first pick.
