Absolutely wrong. For any programme or system to understand itself, it's flaws and the trends within it, statistical data is an absolute must. Assessing individuals doesn't work from this stance. If you look at all the Russian players to go the CHL and then assess success and the results show you that for example 75% of them fail whilst 25% succeed within the parameters set ; then one can only conclude that statistically going to the CHL is bad. Obviously these numbers are just a random example. But if 75% of your produce is ruined by leaving early, then wouldn't it stand to reason that the best course of action is to prevent them from leaving? There will always be outliers ; some kids will prosper or fail in whatever environment that develop within and some kids will prosper much more in the CHL than they would have in the KHL. But the collective (and this is what a development system SHOULD care about), if the data says the CHL harms its products, then something needs to be done.

Assessing them as individuals is all well and good from an idealistic point of view. If however you want to take the logical approach and improve the system, you cater to the needs of the collective, not the individual.
