To me, it's not a question of should we get more Quebecers, its a question of why Latendresse started producing when he left, why Ribeiro was better in Dallas?
Those questions brings me to another one, would Perron, Giroux, etc. would be as good if they were playing for Montreal? Would they even have played that many game if they would have been drafted by Montreal?
I think that development and pressure are things to criticize way before the number of quebecers on the team...
Would we care about the number of local players on the team if we had Crosby or Ovechkin? I don't think so...
