Other than the green team, who are the clubs that seem to always attract the high end euro talent? Then of course the million dollar question.......how?

I think you answered your own question by using the word "dollar" in it.

I'll be interested to see if Machala does anything this year . I expect a big improvement .

So if I give a 1 to each of miku and Aagard and a 1/2 each to Machala and insam that's three above average players over a ten year history. They've made fifteen selections.

That means 12 out of 15 were either sub par IMHO or didn't report ... I should've said 80% not 95% apparently lol

Fact of the matter is the import draft for Niagara is generally a waste of time and effort IMHO. May as well swing for the fences, get the best talent available, and hope you can convince ($) them to report ...

Just for fun here's been some of the failed selections over the years ...

"Weird Dalomir" Jancovic lol (don't even remember him)
Maxamillion Englebrecht
Petteri "I can't believe the Habs drafted me" Similla
Milan "gimpy shoulder" Doudera
Jaroslav "i. Can't think of a nickname" Pavelka
David "I belonged in Junior C" Sysla
Ondrej "slugger" Kopta
Alexander "the other Alexander drafted this year was much better than me" Protopovich
David "another late round questionable Flyers' draft pick?" Kase
"The Jean Machine" Pavel Demin
Timothy "London or bust" L
