I understand very few draft picks will have an NHL career. But less than a percent? Not one NHL player out of a pool that has two first rounders in it? And again why that percent is that much higher within draftees that stayed in Finland.
Might have something to do with Finns developing physically slower than players/people fro mother countries.
One should also look at at kids who played in CHL for how many games they played in SM-Liiga. Like I said, a lot of them didn't have NHL level talent to begin with.
