Also, I am offended that you compare the French Canadians to minorities in other market. It shows very little knowledge of the market the Habs operate in and the market these other teams are operating in.
I like Savard and respect what he's done. It's just a shame that my Habs are confined to a smaller talent pool than every other team.
My comparison of minorities had nothing to do with size or importance. The Nashville/Vancouver examples were just off the top of my head. I'm not sure how this reflects poorly on Quebecois or why it would offend you -- it wasn't my intention. The only point I was trying to make is that no other NHL team limits its talent pool. We do.
The real irony is that the NHL will keep moving further away from both Quebec and Canada as rosters become more and more international.
