Not to mention Daugavinsh; to my surprise he managed to get into the NHL while playing for the Sens who have many good prospects right now.

The decision to leave for the CHL will hardly ruin Bukarts' career, and honestly I don't think that most young euro players suffer from playing in NA (there are exceptions), though it hurts their local hockey development system. If they leave at an early age, then the competition in their former league becomes worse and the local fans don't get a chance to see them play live. That's just my opinion.
