Pohjola-camp MVP award must be cursed or something. Last MVP to make the NHL is Sean Bergenheim, who was MVP in 1999.

I don't know what's the situation with Torniainen, but I think his development started to slow down in his final season in Sweden. This season was basically lost totally after he got injured in fall and didn't play since, so I'm not surprised no one used a pick on a smallish European who had lost most of the season due to injury.
