I mean they have to do their homework on players but I think there philosophy is to draft closer to home and I would guess drafting Russians early is something they would not do.
While I think their philosphy is to draft North American as a preference I doubt it precludes drafting talent from elsewhere.
With last year being such a rush , for all aspects , it would not surprise me that True North didn't think they had a strong enough read on players from overseas. If that is true they would have felt it best to draft where they had the strongest conviction. I have to think they will draft a player from overseas this year , we shall see.
