They do want to get the best talent in the world, I will give you that.
This is pretty much bang on. The NHL wants to maximize its revenues, and by far there biggest source of revenue is in NA. Also the NHL does want to have the best players, but that is different from growing the game. The best are the best, regardless of the size of the pool.
