Because one of them was designed in America by American engineers, while the other was designed in Japan by Japanese engineers.
You'll have to forgive me for not putting much stock into Hull's ~ four years of hockey education in a state that had produced exactly three NHL players by the time he moved away. You are right though that he is only tangentially related to the topic.

Are you trying to say their coaches will use a conservative defensive system?

Quebecers like Mike Bossy, Gump Worsley, Scott Mellanby, Roberto luongo, Mike Ribeiro are not French-Canadians.
If we are talking about ethnicity/mother tongue, technically they aren't French Canadians just like Joe Sakic, Nazem Kadri and many more aren't Anglo Canadians.

However, in a practical manner, I would consider Ribeiro and Luongo as Francophones because they speak French perfectly and it's probably the language they are most comfortable with.
