    Hiya Gang......

    I couldn't help but notice that alot of the key players on the Team canada roster this time around are from the province of Quebec........we're talking about the likes of Lemieux, St.Louis, LeCavalier, Gagne and Brodeur.........I've also heard some discussion in here about how this tourney needs some more teams added to the equation and that's when I started thinking to myself about how a Team made up of just Quebecers would fair in the World Cup of hockey............so my question here for all of you is a two parter:

    (A) Who would you include on your Team Quebec and Team English Canada rosters?

    (B) If the Finals featured these 2-teams in a best out-of-three who would win the Series?..........Team Quebec OR Team English Canada?........

    Let the debate(s) Begin.

    Cheers!~

    P.S.........maybe the fans from Western Canada can come up with a team Canada-West roster and the fans from Ontario come up with a roster for a Team Ontario.

    Quebec will separate from Canada in the 20 years to come.

    A) I started to think about who to include on Team Quebec when I realized they'd have no defesemen.

    out of the current team Canada: Brodeur, Luongo, Theodore, Gagne, Lecavalier, and Lemieux are from Quebec. obviously they'd lack the goaltending they have right now (they'd still have Belfour, Turco, Roloson and Burke, with Raycroft for the future.), but they're still a solid team without those from Quebec.

    team Quebec would obviously have the best goaltenders, but they couldn't put together the kind of team that Canada could.

    ok lets try it out.

    Team Canada

    Nash-Sakic-Iginla
    Smyth-Thornton-Heatly
    Richards-Marleau-Murray
    Morrow-Yzermam-Doan

    (extra: Draper, Maltby)

    Neidermayer-Foote
    Jovonoski-Blake
    Regher-Reddan

    (Extra: Bowmester, Brewer)

    Belfour
    Turco
    Raycroft



    Team Quebec

    Tanguay-Lemieux-Gagne
    Lecavalier-Ribeiro-St-louis
    Walker-Briere-Daze
    Dupuis-Damphousse-Dumont

    (extra: Robitaille, Daigle, Bergeron)

    Aucoin-Brisebois
    Desjardin-Bergeron
    Boucher-Dandenault

    (Extra: Girard, Gauthier)

    Brodeur
    Luongo
    Theodore


    This took me so long to do it's not even funny. Quebec has an ok team but the defence is pretty week but underrated. There netminders are fantastic which is what would really keep them in the game. I think Team Canada would win but not by much.

    You can add Jonathan Girard, Eric Desjardins and maybe even Denis Gauthier to the team quebec defence.

    Maybe Quebec could talk Raymond Bourque out of retirement for this Series. :D

    Goaltending no problem:
    Brodeur, Théodore, Lungo, Giguére (our 4th could be 1st in lots of country)

    Offense is pretty good:
    Lemieux, Lecavalier, St-Louis, Gagné, Tanguay, Marleau, Brière, Ribeiro, Bouchard, Bergeron, Damphousse, Robitaille, etc..

    Defense that's tougher:
    Brisebois, Boucher, Desjardins, Bergeron, Gauthier, Dandenault, Bouillon, ..??..ouch!! let's say that Bourque comes of retirement and Aucoin is born in Gatineau instead :dunno:

    I think Québec would be top 5 in the world. Maybe not the powerhouse of Canada and Russia but definately among USA, Sweden, etc.

    For a final, well, I don't know. This would become the biggest rivalry ever. Heart and passion would make a difference, and it could go either side. Wow imagine the party on Ste-Catherine.

    What about the jersey? I'd like something à la Nordique.

    Just curious but why would you call it Team ENGLISH Canada? Why did you not call team quebec Team FRENCH Canada?

    If there is an english speaking quebeker, does he play for team quebec or Team ENGLISH Canada? And if a player is born in quebec but grew up in Ontario is he eligble to play for both or does he have to speak french to play on team quebec? Why would Lemieux be on team quebec, he's lived in Pittsburgh for over 20 years and only lived in quebec for 18. What the criteria is here.

    Really I thought it was because of people like monkey_00. It would have been easy for him to say Team Quebec and Team rest of Canada, but he didn't did he. He specifically said Team ENGLISH Canada. Why would the rest of Canada be labeled English and Team Quebec not labelled Team French Canada? Which because he worded his post that way brings up the questions I posed.

    kickabrat...........

    I called the French team "Quebec" cause that's where the players on that team would be from..........and I called the other team from Canada; "TEAM ENGLISH CANADA" cause it would consist of players from the other provinces and territories of Canada...............what would you rather I call the English team instead?............TEAM ONTARIO-MANITOBA-SASKATCHEWAN-ALBERTA-BRITISH COLUMBIA-NOVA SCOTIA-NEWFOUNDLAND-PRINCE EDWARD ISALAND-NEW BRUNSWICK-AND THE TERRITORIES?...............I don't think so.

    Don't stay up all night in bed worrying about it ok? :)

    Where's Aucoin from? I had no idea he was French. Bad assumption on my part.

    Team Canada, Team rest of Canada.
    But why limit it to just team quebec. You could probably make good teams from just about every province or region. Why not ask for a Team Ontario, Team Maritime, Team BC, Team Prairie Provinces (Team Saskatchewan would probably eat everyones' lunch). All these these teams would be pretty good (except for maybe the maritime one) but much like Canada, individually they would not be great but together, look out. I was just curious why you singled out one segment based on language but not the other. I'm not losing sleep over it, just thought it was curious.

    But with Brodeur in nets you could put Alex Daigle on D.

    I asked for people's opinions on how a Series with Quebec VS English Canada would fair?................please forgive me but I still don't know what point you are trying to make over here........I asked a simple 2-part question.......I'm sorry that you're having such a tough time grasping what I was asking here.......Oh well.
