Agree with both of you. I think it's just a matter of where we are in the draft. For example, given the 30th selection in last years draft, Pearson was clearly the top player on the Kings board, European, North American, or otherwise. Similarly, in the 4th round, Porkins or whatever his name is, clearly was the top choice - at that spot.

It's a matter of picking the best player, irregardless of nationality.
