I think it's not totally bad strategy. They picked basically the best Slovak prospects on the board. Some of them won't make NHL (it never happens that 100% is successful). They keep their rights until some age higher than recent one (right?), so they can land them when they return from NA or something like that if I'm not mistaken.
