1. Why guys like Namestnikov or Yakupov are not regressing? Why are they developing? Why I can't hear your cries how CHL ruined Yakupov? Because it didn't. CHL is not to blame for Grigorenko or any other guy being a bust. In some cases it's a factor, in some cases it benefits them or even saves their careers. Guys like Victor Rask or Pelss for example benefited greatly from moving to CHL.

2. I don't know how Daugavins looked for Latvians but for scouts he was always a project type of player with an upside to be a scoring winger. That's why he was picked #91, not like in the first round. Being picked so late it's actually great he got into NHL at all.
