I don't really think it matters whether the name is marketable in the USA. It's not like Americans are going to flock to the Quebec City team if they're named the Ice Bears or whatever.

QC is a small, ethnic market in Canada. Any way you look at it, they're going to be obscure when compared to the Leafs and Rangers of the world. The smart thing is to go ahead and give them whatever name the local market finds most appealing, because the local market is going to be where they live or die.
