Wasn't it suggested Kopitar play for USA?

As pointed out before, the rules state that a dual citizen has to play four consecutive seasons for a team based in the country he wants to represent after the last time he played for his former national team.
As Kopitar hasn't played for Slovenia since 2008, and has played for a US based team since 2006, he would be eligible to play for the US as soon as he gains citizenship (unless there is a problem with him suiting up for Mora during the lockout, but I don't think that's the case).
Wether he actually wants to switch national team is a whole other story.
