On the other hand if someone like Zibanejad doesn't live up to his hype and become a star there's a decent chance he would play on the 2nd/3rd line and stay in North America.

It would be interesting to see the % of Russians drafted in each of the periods of time that the OP has selected. I don't believe it is that high.
