An these kids are playing in your own backyard, you HAVE to make the effort.
Again, it's very easy to say that now, not so much on draft day. At the time, the Habs (and other teams), didn't think those players would be as good as players selected before them. It's easy to point out players from Quebec who have made an impact in the NHL, but you can find plenty of them who haven't. Did the Habs make a mistake by not drafting them? You have to select who you think will be the best player for your team, no matter what. If they start picking players for what language they speak, things will become even worse.

Wow, I totally missed the "Quebecer" part. My bad, lol.
