Language has not one thing to do with that fact. Our history provides both positive, and negative proofs of the same thing. Competent management with a vision gets things done. Incompetent management with no stones leads to trading a whose who list of perennial all-stars and first ballot HOFers for spare parts.
Speaking as a fan from outside the province, I can say that there is a prevailing opinion that language is a serious detractor to the city, particularly the language police. French Canadian players don't want to be annointed to roles they can't fill and anglophones fear being turned on for not speaking french. Just an outsiders POV, not that I believe its true.

I think he was saying that Giroux played in the Q. Still a selective bias for an analysis.
