What I'm saying it that if I ran Hockey Canada, I wouldn't select him for any Canadian team. It doesn't seem fair to me.

I'm not worried about what country he will represent, it's obvious that he will play for Canada if he is good enough. I am saying that I would prefer that he play for the country that trained him in hockey. You're right though, how he turns out as a hockey player is more significant and also mainly the point of the thread.

I don't cheer for him, as I'm Canadian. I think it's basically a joke that Galchenyuk plays for USA, and if I was American I would be somewhat embarrassed by it.
