Sometimes the simple answer is the right answer. There is/was a good goaltending tradition in Quebec born out of serious training. Maybe the same cannot be said for skaters, especially Defensemen.
I think that it speaks to the lack of defense in Quebec minor hockey. Goalies have to be fantastic just to keep scores respectable.
