I think what Frolov is trying to say is that, it's not like Jaskin is doing anything that hasn't been done by many other players in all 3 CHL leagues every year. He's a player, in his 2nd post-draft season, who is putting up very good numbers. But, he is in his last year of junior, he is a huge kid with 2 years of pro experience in the Czech Rep. and he is playing in the least physical of the 3 canadian leagues. All those things considered and some may just feel that this is where Jaskin should be at this point in his development and not a sign of him suddenly exceeding expectations.
I still think he looks like a good player, with very good upside, but he was lackluster in his 2nd season in the Czech league last year and one good year in the Q doesn't guarantee you NHL success. Going up to Peoria at the end of the year (if he gets the opportunity) or for next year will be a good test for him, hopefully he continues to get better.
