As much as I hate to consider Dinamo as a developmental team for the mighty "Latvian hockey", it still has certain developmental functions anyway.

It's in Dinamo's best interests to give younger Latvian players a shot at playing in the KHL. I mean, I don't see players developing outside Latvia (Blugers, Girgensons, Klavins, Kenins, Zandovskis, Merzlikins to begin with) to join Dinamo anytime soon. Nowadays clubs tend to stick to their younger players, even if they are foreigners. Without giving any of the try-out guys a chance, in a decade Dinamo might as well look like Minsk (in another decade - like Medvescak ).

In the same time, I honestly believe that Porejs might have a shot at challenging Rekis/Lavins/Cibulskis place in the line-up. Siksna might come in handy, as it would be naive to rely on sole Kuzmenkovs for the junior spot on the roster.
