Such system should be in place for young players only. Those Canadians, Swedes, Czechs and Finns who play in the KHL are in most cases established players, not youngsters.

As for NHL clubs paying for Canadian and US players. They have a different system. It's their own problem. European professional clubs develop their players in their own hockey schools. They spend considerable resource to grow talent for their professional team and NHL clubs take the better ones pretty much for free.
