Don't let the Don Cherry's fool you into thinking there is anything political about Team Canada selections.
I'm talking strictly stats here. The players in the roster that is given for a Team Quebec do not have the stats to add up to any other team ....except in the goalie dept. where we win by a landslide. I love Quebec , But I truly don't see how splitting up the Province's players from the core of the country's greatest could make us a BETTER or Equal value team .... it's simple math . we have Team Canada's ( 100% ) ....then we take away 6 Quebecois ( 30% )from the team ...
What do we have left ? Canada at 70% and Quebec with 30% ... now both teams have to find the missing parts which can't possibly be all as good as the initial 100%
You make perfect sence. Its funny that Because of one persons actions all the Quebecois are looking for their provincial identity. People that live in Quebec are still Canadian, and people that live in Quebec are Quebeckers.
Kinda of OT, Why is Quebec the only province that flies it flag everwhere? I've always wondered why and I have lived in the QC for 18 years.
