I'm not a fan of the "Habs need Francophones to win because they always had them on SC winning teams" argument, because let's be honest here, there's a reason the Habs decline parallels the globalization of the game. Even in 1993 Europeans and Americans had much less of an impact than they have today, and as far as heart and soul goes, the 86 winning Habs team was probably the toughest, at least in the fighter/intimidation sense, and also the most international of the cup winning sides. There's a certain benefit to having local players though. At the very least, at least Barkov is already a fan.

The wealth of Q talent in this draft is huge for us, this is an unusually good class for the Q and we definitely need to take advantage of that, but with the first pick BPA should win out above all else. If we can get another first round pick, great, but at the very least we have some 2nd round picks and this will be a great opportunity to scout our backyard.
