I know that Sibir has good scouting in Czech republic and Finland for example.
I think also pyschology could play some role in this. These CHL kids maybe feel partially bitter about them going undrafted by NHL despite of their effort, who knows. With them being picked in KHL draft, they'd have something to feel good about and therefore could be more willing to come over to play in KHL in younger age.

But KHL really needs to drop foreigners per team limit to make this work.
