True, but Frolov is only two years from being a UFA, so a swap isn't all that unreasonable. Having a franchise (or close to it) defenseman for one year + having first (and second) crack at signing him long-term (i.e. the real prize) probably equals having a #1 non-franchise LWer for two years + having first (and second) crack at signing him long-term.
