A Quebecer forward could come in and replace Tyler Toffoli in the Habs lineup

Following the trade that sent Tyler Toffoli to the Calgary Flames, beyond all the analysis we have seen, there is an important question that remains, in the short term at least: who will be his replacement, in the current lineup?

Emil Heineman is not an option at the moment, and for Tyler Pitlick, it is not a guarantee.

If we look at the latest line combinations, the options are: Christian Dvorak (injured), Laurent Dauphin, Cedric Paquette, Michael Pezzetta and of course, Tyler Pitlick.

If Andrew Hammond is in goal (and not Samuel Montembeault), we can expect it will be a forward from Quebec, because Drouin, Savard and Perreault - are all unavailable at the moment, and we all remember very well the strong reactions when it happened last season.

It's a hot topic right now on social networks. Does it have to be a Quebecer?

First question: Which one would you choose?

Second question: Do you believe in the importance of it being a Quebecer?
