With the statements Savard made, and the position he will now occupy, he could very well "force" his GM to bring more Quebec born and french speaking players on this team, even if they might not be the best option available. I'd be happy to have more of those players if they are still good and a right fit. But I gotta admit that I am a bit nervous to see Savard become our next GM boss. And also, it might not appeal to some candidates to have another guy above them besides the owner, and even less if you had that the guy is an ex GM who might want to have final say over the moves made.
I don't like that.
I think he really meant more about picking more prospects in the Q (underrated league), so it's not absolutely Quebec players. Grigorenko will do the trick
