Given that neither is in their primes, not sure where you get off making that statement. And I have serious reservations about that one.
Havlat = Already is one.
Who says Frolov isn't? He's among the leaders in the RSL in scoring and a part of a small group hovering around a PPG. He had a 24 goal season last year in the NHL and given his play this year, believing Frolov could already score 30 goals in the NHL is quite realistic.
And then you have to factor in that Frolov, at 22, is already LA's best defensive forward. And he's 6'3 and still filling out. And he has an uncanny ability to control the puck for long strectches at a time ala Jason Allison. And he is a quality character individual.
I really, really like Havlat. But Frolov has just so much ability and potential. It's possible that Frolov is just teasing us and wont be as good as most Kings fans anticipate but I really don't care. He's shown too much not to ride it out with him and see what he develops into. (Unless, of course, sometimes offers to ridiculously overpay for Frolov. Havlat, however, is not a ridiculous overpayment.)
