Hence the reason Stastny doesn't belong anywhere near the Quebec roster.

He has dual citizenship.

And him "not being good enough for the Canadian team" is a load of BS.

Bergeron is kept on the Canadian team as a 13th forward. How is Pominville good enough to be on the Canadian team?

I think during a project like this all bets are off. He playes for the USA but considers both countries as close to him. He was born in Quebec and learnt the game there, i believe he can be on Team Quebec.

You'd be hard pressed to find many people agreeing with that opinion. And still, he'd be at best a 13th forward. Canada has fire power on all 4 lines. Bergeron was kept for his defensive abilities. Pominville's offense wouldn't cut him a spot on the roster.

Good, can we have Tyler Myers back? Also, Germany would like Heatley back. Or Regehr. Or Nolan. It happens.

Heatley's dad is Canadian and he grew up/started playing hockey in Canada. Plays for Canada, makes sense.

Regehr's parents were Canadian missionaries. He grew up and started playing hockey in Canada. Plays for Canada, makes sense.

Nolan was born in Ireland but grew up in Canada. Had he stayed in Northern Ireland, he likely wouldn't have been a hockey player. Plays for Canada, makes sense.

Tyler Myers is probably "more" American but he explains why he chose Canada in this article... http://www.thehockeynews.com/article...mpionship.html

Jason Pominville was born to a Canadian dad and American mother. Grew up in Canada. Started playing hockey in Canada. Chose to play for Team USA? I think it's pretty obvious why he chose USA... Now I'm not saying that he should play for Canada. He's a dual citizen, he could play for who ever he wants.

Let's get one thing straight here considering Pominvilles ties to Team USA. Sure he saw a bigger chance to play for a national team, but i have for long thought that not only that and that his mother is american have had a part in his look upon the USA. I simply believe his three plus years on the Rochester Americans have a part in it, playing in those highly patriotic american jerseys. He made his future career in the big league down there.

Depends on the criteria. Cam Ward was born in Saskatchewan but was raised in Alberta, and I'm sure he considers himself an Albertan. I argue that, in that sense, we should have Ward, not Saskatchewan.

Saskatoon - but moved to Sherwood Park at an early age. I'm pretty sure you can consider Ward Albertan.

Still, we don't produce many goalies as a province, it seems
Can we get Osgood?

Who does he beat out on Team Canada? He didn't even make the USA Olympic roster team but you think it's bs he wouldn't make the Canadian team? LOL

Thanks for saving me the time of having to respond to that silly post.

I believe in the theory of where a player developing his hockey and hockey skills has far more weight then where said player happened to be born. Ppull who think a guy like Heatley who was born in Germany but left when he was about 2 years old not being eligible to play for Canada is ridiculous.

Sorry about that but Jason Pominville is from ****ing Repentigny lol. I'd be shocked if he'd prefer to represent USA over Canada, as someone else pointed out he only opted to play for the USA team cause he had no chance to crack the other roster.

And that's not the point. It's about canadian province sand Pominville is from Québec...

Norrland (North appr. only 1 mill. inhabitants but great many teams)

Sedin Sedin Zetterberg
Lander Bäckström Omark
Holmström Lindström Silfverberg
Påhlsson Johan Larsson Harju (2 not really NHL)

Edler Enström
Hedman A. Larsson
Rundblad Erixon

Lindbäck
Markström


Götaland and South (Gothenburgh, Malmö)
Eriksson Johansson Alfredsson
Steen Nyquist Stålberg
Ullström J. Andersson Tedenby
Pääjärvi Klingberg (AHL) Brunnström

OEL Karlsson
Strålman Hjalmarsson
Lilja A. Grossman

Lundqvist
Lehner


Svealand (Stockholm and middle of Sweden)

Landeskog Berglund Franzen
Hagelin Wandell Hörnqvist
Huselius Kruger Samuelsson
Backlund Bergfors Zibanejad (Centre, but he can cope)


Kronwall Gunnarsson
Tallinder Murray
Oduya Ericsson

Hedberg
Gustavsson


I think Götaland comes out a bit flat, they got Lundqvist in goal (ok backup on the odd games too) but no line or pairing which stand out. Defense is solid, Karlsson make a difference here.

Svealand got the skill and grit on both the two first pairings. Good lines overall and I would say that the first line is a really legit first line.

Hedberg/Gustavsson in goal, I think we got a 1a&b situation here. It is ok, but not great.



Norrland got an even better first line but a weak bottom 6. On the other side all 6 D-men are good enough to make some damage (ok bottom pairing is weak, but they so they all are). Lindbäck with Markström as backup might be a question-mark (weakest goalie situation of the three perhaps), but I think it is ok even if not great. Impressive that you can get this team with so little population as a base.


So where would these "provinces" slot in among the Canadian ones?
Wouldn't Lundqvist be able to slot in with the Norrland team since the first team he played for as a kid was Järpens IF? Then your Norrland team is easily the best out of the 3, despite its small population.
