Possibly. But you have to admit that a high-end young goal-scoring talent doesn't belong on the fourth line with 7-8 minutes of TOI. But I do agree wholeheartedly in making him earn it and teaching him to play two-way hockey.

But, no matter what, if the Jackets were crazy enough to offer him for Frolov you gotta know we would do it. I think our staff can break him in, not to mention the amount of Russians, especially younger ones, that we have in the system now playing in Manchester, I think he could get along well here.

All of this is fluff and I am just goofing around, but acquiring that kid would be something... If only we didn't need to trade Frolov... I would love to see a Frolov-Loktionov-Filatov line
