Well there's your problem because you should. You can't force citizenship upon someone. And he still grew up with a Canadian family living abroad. I think your discounting the effect his mother and father had on his hockey career. Have you never met someone who had to live elsewhere for work purposes but still identifies their country as somewhere else?

This argument is tiresome and worn out, I'd love to talk about Sean Day the hockey player, not Sean Day the Canadian or Sean Day the American.
