are all imperfect versions to various degrees of the Real Québécois.

The only reason the imperfect Québécois are assimilated to the perfect Québécois is to bash the Habs to have drafted someone that doesn't even qualify as an imperfect Québécois (Eastern European, Minnesota kid, etc...). See for example Claude Giroux. Get with the times, bud...
