That's kind of the point, seen from two different angles. Some will say that they complain about something real, the lack of local players on the team, and the solution is, if you don't have any, get more, if you have some, get some better.
Others will say that they are just complaining no matter what. When we had Latendresse, Bouillon, Begin, Dandenault, etc., we didn't have enough good ones. Now that we only have Lapierre (and the other one...), we don't have enough, any quebecer would do it.
As I said many times, to me, both sides are the same, what I hate is the influence that those guys have on the weak ones. The influence that bring a lot of "Gainey
" (in real life, not on hfboards) and when you ask why, you don't get any answer...
