It has to do with his line mates going from Kopitar & Brown to Handzus & Richards plus reduction in PP time.
So...he hasn't exactly been playing with their better talent for any major stretch of time the last couple years.
Poni was a top line winger in Toronto the whole time the last couple years, Frolov has been doing his from the third line while his production slipped.
Boy, I wish we had that kind of inconsistency in a winger who can get 60 to 70 points, then throw him down to the third line because you feel he is inconsistent.
Makes tons of sense, huh?
You ever wonder why a guy with Frolov's skill was on the 3rd line to begin with? Or maybe why his coach scratched him for games?
