I'd prefer Seguin over Skinner unless Skinner out performs him in the next year and a half...and from what I saw of Skinner at last year's WHC, I'm not so sure he can. He was terrible at the WHC except for the one pretty wrap around goal against the Finns... other than that all you saw of him is that spinorama move coming down the wing...which is pretty much his go to move..and pretty ineffective.
Who cares if there is no Quebecer on the team. The goal is to take the best players regardless of province. I do not care if there is no Quebecer. Frankly, if every player on the team was from Ontario or Alberta, I would care less. The goal is to take the best players. Luongo is a Quebecer. Does not matter if he is French Canadian. Letang is the best bet to be the French Canadian that is there.
