Some miracles happen, Skrastins was drafted at 24, though he was a d-man. Will see how he does next season. If he continues to progress further, who knows. Don't think he'd be against moving to the NHL Though there were signs mid season that all these things started to get to his head, hope that won't be a concern further on...
We heard the same stories about Darzins (and to some extent in Redlihs case as well) as well and look how he looks put on a roster of a competative team. Yeah, he has been unlucky with injuries, but still, his and Indrasis numbers are vastly improved by the amount of the quality icetime they see/saw every game and that's it.

I'm looking at them and no way I can see them becoming regular NHL'ers.
