Can't really point to any real reason it happens. I imagine with each player it's different and most likely on them and not the fault of the NHL/AHL system in some way.
a Canadian pro coaching in Switzerland was telling that one of the big differences was that in Switzerland, you make something with the players you have while in Canada, you have your system and chose the player that best fit the position.

of course it may be a big generality but it still is a hindsightfull remark.
