As for the local players debate, pretty much every team in the league sees having local talents on the team as a plus. The Wild like players from Minnesota, The Sens like players from the capital's region and The Leafs like to get players from the Toronto area as an example.

It's just a shame that every time it is mentioned that the Habs should do the same, it has to turn into a damn political debate of francos vs anglos...
The Habs already "do the same" I'm sure they have twice the percentage of Quebecers on contracts as the NHL average.
