Copy the Champions

The Draft was this past weekend, and as has become a custom in the NHL, all of the teams are trying to emulate the most recent Stanley Cup Champions, the Detroit Red Wings. Of all the Europeans drafted, over a third of them were from Sweden (17/45). Well Canadians and Americans still remanded the most popular, many of the GM's are taking the imitate the Red Wings approach to drafting Europeans.

The Sabres however took all north americans in the draft this year, (and no goalies).
