    The biggest pitfall regarding Québécois is the draw of Major Junior. Not that that is necessarily a show stopper, just another hurdle. The ECAC and Big East teams fish those waters hard as well. Until the coaches wrap their heads around ‘we need 3-4 “threats”’ I’m afraid the team will be unbalanced. Take this year, I felt we needed at least 3 additional skaters. We now have 2 injuries, so 6 of 8 defensemen playable. Offensive threats have yet to show themselves (it’s early) but we don’t have much time.

    Right. Easier for Vermont, Maine, maybe New Hampshire, and definitely schools in upstate New York to recruit Francophones -- because there are people in that region who speak the language... and it's close to home.

    Outside of the region, Omaha is probably the best option. DNB is the X-Factor. His personal story is the pitch.
