He speaks French exactly like any other French speaking kids in Quebec.

Officially he is not A Quebecer, but

It's like Galchenyuk. Both are from Belarus but he is born in USA and can speak Russian with the best of them.
Does that make Rafael Diaz a Quebecer? I think the point is Couturier is from New Brunswick, not Quebec, he's a Francophone, but Francophone doesn't mean "local talent". Just like Giroux.

Yeah, hockey DBs numbers are outdated.

Anyway the point being, if you had to trade Subban, Couturier is a nice return. But it's not a good trade just to make a statement.
