i'm picking up what you're putting down. he's not an energy or checking type guy much, if at all.
but still, as much as i hate to say it, frolov has been showing a lack of assertiveness at times this season. if reducing his icetime gets him to play harder, and i won't disagree.
as for trading frolov, there is no way i would trade him for straka at all. because: frolov has so far demonstrated that he can play at least 78 games in a season. he's been durable so far, and as that is now what i feel should be the primary quality the los angeles kings look for in players, he stays. aulin for straka? done.
and lastly, in response to your question about deadmarsh and allison, i'm going to adopt a mindlessly optimistic stance:
"i expect them both back VERY soon!"
