If you decide AKost isn't good enough, then it puts the entire off-season into question -- if you don't have good youth, then you don't bother with UFAs, you need to rebuild instead.

Unless AKost is traded for a similarly young offensive forward (and Frolov is UFA next year), I think trading him throws the whole long-term plan of the franchise into question.
frolov is only 27. Considering boston and philly both had franchise turn arounds in under 3 years, you have to wonder how much time you have to give players before saying enough is enough.

I don't see the future kovy in Akost. He hasn't been too impressive this year.
