I tend to roll my eyes a lot at old-school media types, particularly when attempt to connect a player's birthplace to their potential value to a hockey team. Real dinosaurs are still yet to be sold that Europeans play the same sport, and some of those will even include Quebec as the unknown member of the EU. Those who aren't jurassic but are still delusional will often suggest that [team here] will only succeed if they're loaded with a core from [home state or province]. Really, it shouldn't matter where you're from, just how well you play.
But let me take a page out of their book for just one day - could the Leafs benefit from completely removing the prairie provinces from the organization?

With the NHL All-Star Fantasy Draft a day away, both myself and Jeff decided to do a fun exercise in which we'd select our own All-Star teams. But then Bobby Cappuccino showed up and decided to crap all over our selections, which is just so typical of him.
