Point is that not covering a league which (effectively) never produces a player drafted in the NHL Entry Draft is not exactly a gaping hole in the system.

No, I want the leagues that are important with respect to the Entry Draft, principally the western and Ontario leagues. Others may be desirable, depending on their history in the draft.

The system can, in theory, work with any junior league, it's just a matter of devoting the resources necessary to calibrate the calculations for that league. If the league is very unlikely to produce a draft-worthy player, then the limited time available is better spent on another league.

There will always be outliers. There's no way around that.
