That would be interesting, and the media coverage would be insane. I think at least Brodeur has said that he wouldn't play for a Quebec team.
Sure, except none of those guys chose to play for the US team. Pominville would certainly be free to make his offseason home in Quebec. He doesn't.

The point is that he is a Canadian-American hockey player. He had a choice, was in his right to make it and made it. Who knows what he'd do if there was a Quebec team.
