Tonight the better player gets less points but how many times have we watched Frolov have incredible games where he doesn't score. So far, I think they are close in skill but I give the edge to Frolov as he is the better physical player of the two. Both are good though.
Theres no question in mind Hemsky has more skill than frolov now. I don't even think its close, as far as pure skill. I still think frolov has a lot of growing to do because he looks awkward at times (eg the 2-on-1 with belanger, or countless times he's messed up one-timers).

If Frolov can consistently make more high % offensive plays, (vs skating back and forth behind the goalie), the sky is the limit for him.

Frolov can do 10x better, imo.
