If he does get a fire under his ass and plays well then you know its there. If he's out there feeling sorry for himself and hating the organization for not giving him a fair shake then it will become obvious in his play.
if anything has been certain, Frolov has never really been one to "blame" anything or point fingers at anyone. he's never really given any indication that he's that type of player.
Either way, time for him to not rely on his talent and to work harder. DL ought to call him out just like he called Kopitar and Dustin Brown out at the end of last season. Fro can do it..question is,,does he care and how much?
he did, and he responded. despite the fact that he hasn't been scoring, his overall play has been very good since he's been benched... much more consistent than the other two.
i think his omission is a result of a couple of things, and a number of people are way overreacting about the reason(s) why; 1. he's simply not putting up any numbers... especially those necessary for a top sixer on the Russian squad, 2. Max Afinogenov is having a helluva year so far, 3. there has got to be a certain level of politics regarding the KHL involved here.
