In any event, this is veering far enough from the actual topic so I will cease. To me Pominville is just as legitimate to add to this roster as anyone raised in Quebec.
Pominville and Hull and Colin Wilson would still be Americans, they just wouldn't be American hockey players because they would be wearing this jersey.



The same with Martin Brodeur. He is an American, but he is not an American hockey player because he plays for Canada.

You can be both American and Canadian citizens, but you only get to pick one to play for.
