The guy is KHL bound this summer.
the loafing bit is beyond played out and ridiculous, and you can't start framing your argument with this and that's else we start in on Kopitar and the top line's rousing performance (including your boy, Parse) against the Islanders.
Frolov had a spike game because he played with Gaborik, absolutely... he's a support player and it sure as hell beats having to "bring more offense" by supporting Stepan and Prust.
bottom line here is the Kings are short a top 6 winger and you're insisting it has to be a left winger, and they let Frolov walk for less than they're paying Ponikarovsky... who's also out for a while... and Frolov, like him or not, was a successful left wing presence able to play on 3 lines effectively.
they haven't addressed this need since they dealt Cammalleri, and Mike played on the Right side in Los Angeles, though seems to be fully functional on the left side.
