Timmins has stated in the past they like HS and College players because you keep their eligabilty longer and it allows them to develop longer, with CHL players and Euro's they go pro earlier because of the 20 year old cut off in the CHL and the various elite leagues in Europe.

Draft a HS or NCAA kid and they can come into your system at 22 instead of losing them at 20 because you haven't signed them yet.

Its a development strategy.
