It's not cheap for CHL teams to bring Europeans over, it's a rather expensive process especially because not all Europeans are necessarily going to report to CHL teams. There are a bunch of deals with agents in this process, not necessarily with scouting IMO. Just because a European doesn't have a great year in the CHL, doesn't mean the scouts are bad. It's a huge transition to come over to a different country, and adjust to the North American game. Plus factors like language barriers, adjustment to school, different lifestyle etc, stuff like these people forget to take into account.
