I guess it depends on how you define 'impact' player but Frolov has already made a decent case. (and, imo, would be stating that case quite emphatically in the NHL right now)
That's a Bonk sized impact. Not exactly what comes to my mind when I think of 'the next impact player' in the league, but you may have a different interpretation. Frolov will be better thank Bonk and probably soon; Havlat already is.

Yeah, but he's got nothing on Rosa.

Frolov being a center is what makes this offer interesting. If I'm going to move Havlat though, I'd rather receive a player with more experience, not less. I disagree that I am underrating Frolov, I've only said that he isn't an impact player - yet. By my definition, he isn't.

I say no for the same reasons as the Frolov deal. Ottawa's time is now and Brown's time is in two or three years at least. I think L.A is better off keeping Brown and Visnovsky anyways.
