Interesting idea. Which other players from outside of Quebec would be eligible? I guess Giroux (franco-ontarian) would be the most obvious answer and high profile player. And also Toews as a franco-manitoban.
And where does Sean Couturier fit in all of this? Yes, he was born in Phoenix and moved all over the world as a kid following his fathers playing career, but I believe the family called Montreal home. So does he qualify for team Quebec? Or only the French Canadian team?

Also, and maybe this is really stretching, but do you guys know of any high profile quebec hockey players who wouldn't also be considered French Canadian. Only one I can think of (and he's of course retired now) is Kevin Lowe. Born and raised in Quebec, but not French Canadian.
