I wouldn't think that we have a bias one way or another. Sweden happened to have a resurgence after a drought in the early 2000s. The USHL (the U-18 team in particular) has started to turn out some great prospects (plus USHL prospects aren't hamstrung by the CHL/AHL rule).

With the Larsson pick, we were probably at the mercy of how EDM/COL/FLO picked. I assume we would have happily taken Landeskog or Huberdeau if Larsson was gone. Although there was that rumor that we were considering Zibanejad at #4.
