I have never really liked Quinn... I suppose the Leafs connection did not help.
That said, I find it hard to be unbiased as I have not seen WHL, or OHL games.
I heard a comment from on CKAC which said that a Quebecois coach in the national under 18 program said that in simple drills where they throw the puck in the corner and let three forwards fight for the puck, it was rare that a QJMHL player came out with the puck.
That was very disturbing.
I guess the truth is in the product we see at the NHL level. Is Quebec producing players with skill AND guts? What proportion vs the other development leagues?
