My personal belief is that scouts go where the talent is, wherever that is which explains the rise of the European goaltender at Quebec's expense. Is it bias because Euro goalies have been better for the last ten years?
What I found refreshing is this study contains actual numbers to discuss & debate, not personal perception being passed on as fact.
