As a Canadian it really hurts to see all of the off spring of Canadian NHL players playing for the USA. I understand they are Americans born and bred but it is unfortunate that so many Canadians have to leave home to make a living in the NHL.

Imagine the offspring of Peyton Manning, Ray Rice, and Tom Seaver playing for Canadian national teams

Overall great for hockey I guess.
They are born in raised in the US. I'm sure they have a decent connection to Canada through family members, but the majority of them spent most of their life in the US. It's not particularly surprising that they want to play for the US team.

I'd actually be thrilled if other countries could produce NFL quality players.
