Unless you're saying there's something intrinsically wrong with drafting americans?
To me, as of now, clearly the Q is underscouted based on the reputation and moreso now, based on the new rules where even french scouts are saying how it will affect a lot of Quebecers now.

As far as finding something wrong about Americans, don't know where you would get this. I do find that there's a difference between finding something wrong, and preferably seeing us to diversity a little bit more where the players are coming from. Seems to me that some places are scouted more than others. But then only results are what is important right? So we'll see about that sooner than later.

But you can't say that I find something wrong about drafting americans when for this year, I have amongst my favorites guys like Moore, Budish, Kreider, Morin, Brown and a few others. Having something wrong against them would mean not having them on my list...
