You can draft and develop youth from mid range and still get decent talent, if you went back I bet you would find alot of players skipped because of bigotry. Take the red wings, they have been really good for ages with late round picks.
Oh I guarantee it. Look at the howling during the draft last season when Leblanc was drafted, just because he was French. One of the principle reasons Latendresse struggled here was because they rushed him into the NHL. Lats was probably our only prospect in a decade to skip the AHL in its entirety to play for the Canadiens, all because he was billed as the francophone Rick Nash. There are moments I long for Quebec City to return with a team so Montreal is left alone with French bias.
