KHL teams aren't going to use high picks on players who will almost certainly never play for them unless they're so high-profile/talented that they might as well take a chance. Zibanejad was taken #129th for example. They know these Swedish kids want to play in the NHL and if that fails they'll probably go home and play in the SEL. There are more Canadians playing in the KHL than Swedes.
