Which one is more important? The league cup is just for teams within the league system, right? So any amateur side could theoreticall win the French Cup? Or am I way off base here?

Anyhow, which one is "better"?

I think that the Coupe de France is more important than the Coupe de la Ligue. Just like in England, where the league cup is not rated very highly. :)

Yes, i think that the French cup is more prestigious and popular by far. Because all the teams are involved, even the amateur one. Starting in july, with the little team of a 500 inhabitants town, to finish with the bigger 's ones : professionals teams.
Since few years, there are always big surprises, like a division 5 team beating a Ligue 1.

The League cup sounds more "commercial". A way to make more money for the professinal system.IMO
