Frolov had arguably his best season playing for Murray in 08-09, where he was the Kings' best forward. He likely would have done the same in 09-10 if he hadn't been used primarily on a defensive line, and hadn't seen his ice time on the PP (and his overall ice time) decline a minute and a half per game.
It was less about the system with those three, and more about the fact that Murray didn't want to play Moulson and Purcell all too much - and (in my view) chose, along with the GM, to sabotage Frolov in order to decrease his market value.
