Rich Hammond's Lombardi Interview

Talks about the team's attitude, Kopitar, Brown and Frolov, replacing Williams and dealing with injuries in general.

Pretty interesting, particularly at the end in regards to Frolov.

So in terms of a trade, you can’t ever say that somebody is untouchable. If you’re asking me, if we can’t get a deal done, if we would trade him for a first-round or a second-rounder, no. That doesn’t mean we wouldn’t make a hockey deal, but I don’t see us making our team worse, which is essentially would I did at every deadline up to this point. The reality was, when you’re trading all those guys, you’re making your team worse but you’re making your reserve list stronger. Now, with a guy like Fro, I don’t see that. A hockey deal? Maybe.
I find it very relieving to hear straight up that Frolov won't get shipped off for a pick.
