Frolik is in Chicago and has become a great penalty killer who can move up and provide some offense if there are injuries. Skille doesn't do anything.

It's like when Santorelli got top 6 minutes and scored 20 goals. It's a natural product of more ice time, not a testament of his ability.
Being nothing special is pretty much a good way to describe a good percentage of the 4th liners in the NHL.

Instead of replacing Skille, why not have Skille and bring in more tough, tenacious players? That would solve the toughness problem. Is Skille not cheap enough to retain? It's not as if he's projected to receive an overpayment.

He's not Santorelli. Santorelli literally does nothing. If you can't tell the difference, perhaps we're watching different games.
