The reason those 1st place teams have more Foreign players than the Last place teams is simple...Money.

Agreed

Soccer is a very different game than hockey. Those last place teams have more hometown (country) players due to not having enough money to go out and signing bigger names. Hockey isn't that way.

Agreed

Ps: This doesn't mean that I believe that we should get more NA players than Euros, it was just to say that you can't compare both sports given the financial side (In Soccer they don't go out to draft players, they sign them).
Fine. But because a team has a bigger bankroll, it doesn't just spend money for the sake of spending money. It spends more money because it feels the extra money spent will better their club. And it doesn't go and get those foreign players ahead of the available local players because they want to have an exotic face to their club, but because they are the best players they can afford.
