They've played great for Russia before, and really Frolov is everything Kovy needs in terms of support -- possession, size, defensive awareness, skill. And Frolov is cheap. Heck, you might get him for 3.5 per. That's insane. He's better than probably 95% of the players making that much.

In a nutshell, if you were going to design the ideal complementary wing for Kovy, it would probably be Frolov... and you can have him for a bargain price..

Agree. Frolov would be a key intermediary.

I don't want Kovalchuk though. He's not a good fit. He would be too much a of a distraction. We don't need that "star" in LA; we have plenty of them in Hollywood.

From what I've seen as a Kings fan, the stars in LA usually distract from the team. The team has been what has made them successful this year; the summertime commitment is where it all began. Today you see a young skilled team who actually enjoys playing with each other. They have chemistry.
