Do you not? (not looking to argue, but just want to hear your reasoning).
Simply put to bring more imports would affect the Canadian development system since there is one less spot for young Canadian players on the team and the goal of the CHL is to develop Canadian talent. Yes in some cases the Euros are the most talented on the team but to have a roster littered with them would certainly not benefit hockey Canada, We are seeing this in our goal-tending, since many Euro goalie imports are drafted recently, the Canadian goalies are getting less playing time and the young promising prospects on a team are spending seasons in junior B because there is no room for them.
