I still think that knee injury in 05-06 against Philly that kept him out of the Olympics played a large role in his decline along with lack of ice time in year 2. We'll never know for sure though unless he comes out and says it.
I don't think a lot of your examples work...

Comrie, Higgins and O'Sullivan have either had attitude problems, a hard time fitting into lockerrooms, a hard time finding consistency, and/or all 3.

Frolov's problem will never have to do with the physicality of the league. That's purely a euro stereotype. Frolov's great when it comes to playing in the dirty areas.
