Per my model at post #771 they have around 1.6 mil in cap space and they can retain 1.1 mil so it won't be problem for them.
I'm not as familiar with bottom 6 needs of many teams so can't really tell. Of the teams I follow more closely, I think Colorado could have use for him but they are div. rivals next year. Possibly New Jersey. Maybe Calgary, dunno.
Or they can just buy him out. Doesn't have to be trade.
Also reportedly Hawks are high on Raanta so they can sign him instead of emery and save some cap space there, and then there is maybe no need to move Frolik at all. Or they can waive him and even that would be enough.
