Newcomer with some questions!

I've been a frequent reader here for quite a while, lived in my whole life and I'm a big fan of every tampa team (lightning, bucs :-(, rays) and i finally decided to join this site, actually the day of stamkos' injury.

I was wondering, how come the lightning don't call up their draft pick from this year in an effort to "replace" stamkos(no way anyone can actually replace stammer)?

I thought i read somewhere that the lightning can only call up Drouin (spelling?) in an emergency situation (whatever that means)? why is that?

I also saw that the lightning called up dj thomas, but why wouldn't they call up kucherov, who was just the player of the week, so he must be playing good?

Is Drouin just not ready to play in the NHL yet?

Thanks for helping out with my questions!
