They may want to anyway. The overwhelming majority of QC is Francophone, of course, and if Montreal is any indication, there will be pressure to bring in more French-Canadian players. And rt may be right in suggesting that the neo-Nords would replace Tippett with a Francophone coach, which would be completely asinine from a hockey standpoint, but that's cultural politics for you. (And in fairness, for all we know, Tippett may not want to live in that fishbowl anyway.)
