The law of averages, suggests there are certain leagues that are better for developing prospects than others. There are always exceptions to the rule, but you want the odds in your favour. There is more risk drafting a SM Liiga player than a CJHL prospect.
I went back at the last 20 drafts to Selanne, and you may be surprised how many Finns didn't pan out in the first rd. Saku Koivu is probably one of the better Finns along with Selanne drafted in the first rd, but anyone recall a Hannu Toivonen or Jesse Niinimaki just to name 2 of many?
