that's fair. I've lived in 6 provinces over the last 15 years and have watched alot of the 3 leagues. And you're pretty bang on. The top Q teams the last 5-6 years have moved more to balance their teams to be able to play the 3 styles to have a chance at the Mem Cup. It's looking like a solid year for it again with Rimouski/Halifax (hon. mention to Baie Comeau, and BB).
Bottom line, Saskatoon will be the place to watch hockey in May.
As far as the Habs draft is concerned, if someone is a die hard for drafting from their backyard, 2013 is a good year to have multiple mid round picks. The Q has some very solid mid rounders available.
