Sharks fan, but I just had to pop in and say that I always loved Skrastins no matter what team he played on. I sometimes feel like it's overdone to call players "warriors", but if anyone deserved that label it was Karlis. He played hard, he played smart, and you never doubted that he gave whatever team he was suited up for anything less than 100% effort every second he was on the ice.
There haven't been that many d-men cut from the same cloth as Skrastins over the past few years, and that's a shame. If everyone played as hard as Karlis did, the league would be all the better for it.
the Sharks board shares your pain, having lost promising prospect Daniil Sobchenko in the crash. A terrible time for the hockey community.
