If there's a pro anglo bias, Canadian content in the NHL would not have dropped from 98% to 60% in the last 30 years.

As for your last staement. Yes, let's see what the Habs are made of:

The last 20 years:

The Presidents
Corey
Boivin

The GMs
Gauthier
Gainey
A. Savard
Houle
S. Savard

The coaches
Martin
Carbo
Julien
Therrien
Vigneault
Tremblay
Demers
Burns

The only place you may have an argument is with Timmins but percentage wise he has drafted more Q players than Andre Savard did before him. Timmins has drafted 16 Francos/Q players in 8 years (From 03 to 10). Andre Savard drafted 4 in 3 years (From 00 to 02).

When the presidents, GMs and coaches have been predominately French Canadians how can you make that ridiculous staement that there's a country club bias favoring anglos? When in the last 20 years the only glaring anglo is Timmins and he has a higher draft rate than the head scout before him - a franco, I really think you need to stop and rethink your statement.

If anglos will pick only anglos where are these anglos in charge of the Habs?
