I'm pretty sure by French-Canadian, he means Quebecois, as in someone from Quebec, not what language he speaks primarily at home or what his last name is. Tread carefully with this discussion.
While it's rare that it would be that close, when prospects are on the same level, the order of tiebreakers should go like this IMO:
1. Need (This team needs LWs and stay at home defensemen more than it needs PMDs)
4. Local factor (Quebec of course, but even more so from Montreal and the surrounding suburbs is a bigger deal for me)
5. There ability to speak French and "character" bonus (they overcame a difficult childhood, once saved orphans from a burning building, etc)
Having local players is a good thing, so yes, it's worth consideration. I think we will almost certainly get a few Quebecois players out of this draft, but it's not a factor in every pick.
