Rosa's lazy and almost 27 so I think he blew his shot. The others, though, still have hope (though Kuznetsov, barely).
Think of skating ability like running. No matter how much you practice you can't make a marathon runner into a sprinter. Some people are just crappy skaters, Luc spent all of the offseason on his skating, especially the first several strides and he still looks like a Volkswagon Bus trying to go up a hill
