I understand all the high emotions running around here, but let's not be stupid.
The history of player development doesn't agree with you. But even then I'm not advocating for that either.

I just think it's comical that some of the sheep here think that Frolov, for the umpteenth time being the fall guy - when no one else is - is sending any kind of message to this team other than: "The coach and GM don't like Frolov and it's only a matter of time before he's gone."

Benching some of the guys I mentioned, even if for a period, would send a message. Whether or not it should be done is a different argument, one which I'm not advocating for.
