I will take your word on it though, I have never seen a top NA prospect make this choice.
You said help develop other nation's prospects. You didn't say North American prospects. Few North Americans grow to Europe because there isn't really an incentive to do it, but there's no restriction on it. The Russians, Czechs and Swedes all have foreign players in their junior league system. Adding two more Canadian players per team is going to have a completely negligible effect on the quality of Canadian hockey players. It wouldn't even hurt Europeans all that much and might actually be more beneficial to them. The only purpose it would serve is some sort of quasi moral victory.
