Homegrown Talent On NHL Rosters

An interesting look at NHL drafting. I am too tired to write about it, so I thought I would just throw it out there (courtesy of Odd Man Rush).
"Hockey's Future makes no value judgment on the best percentage of homegrown players. A low percentage could indicate poor drafting and player development, but on the other hand, a high percentage could indicate an inflexibility, and a tendency to hold onto players too long. And in fact, there seems to be very little correlation to the percentage of homegrown talent and the early standings."

It would be interesting to match this up with the standings at some point in the season, and see if it means anything at all. My guess is it does and it doesn't.
