East-Coast Canadian NHL Teams Dominate the Draft
Now what? I had already tweeted about Trevor Timmin's (Canadiens Director of Scouting) excellent track record in later rounds (3rd & beyond), and started to move on to assessing other teams, when I realized that all 3 eastern Canada teams had excellent records.
Range of assessment is between 2000 and 2013; enough time for NHL players to show themselves. Of course "games played" is not an ideal success indicator, but it provides enough to make general observations and can help form some interesting questions.
Why do the NHL teams from eastern Canada have great drafting records in later rounds?
