Habs have been, in the recent past, too distant from the 'Q. Having only a part-time scout in the league. I believe they have improved that weakness by having two full-time scouts in the league.

If you follow me on the draft thread and on the prospects thread, you'll see that while I might have a bias for Québéckers mostly because I watch a lot of 'Q, I'm all for drafting the best player available, wherever he's from.
When the Habs won their last cup, Eastern Europeans were barely in the NHL, so that factors into the higher % of Quebecers(and Canadian players).
