The Canadiens without local/province born players (Anglos or Francos, or any races) would be like Manchester without a UK born player or Real Madrid without a Spanish-born player... The fans would not appreciate. Here, 80% of the Habs fans filling the Bell are not only from Quebec but also French-speaking people.

A bit of respect for the paying clientele is somewhat desirable.

They have won 24 Cups with rosters made at 50% or more of local born players.(English or French-doesn't matter)
