I wanted to throw a name out there that seems like a DL guy to replace Frolov:

Ryan Malone

McKenzie says he is available. He is a big, bruising LW who can put up 20+ goals and 50 points while not taking any ****. Sticks up for teammates and is a pretty good fighter. The downside is his $4.5mm dollar salary for the next 4 seasons but he would be able to fill Smyth's role for two more seasons once Ryan is done.

I know how touchy everyone around here is about salary and Versteeg makes less so he may be more of an option. I love Malone's game and character though and he was a key player for the Pens in their first trip to the Finals.

Would everyone here be upset if LA rolled Marleau, Malone and Smyth at LW next season?
i was thinking the same thing, though it depends on the asking price for Malone, and I haven't looked at numbers yet. If we could do that AND get a defensive upgrade (not necessarily a UFA...may even be internal), I would be satisfied.
