It didn't work out as planned, but Bowman certainly didn't sign Frolik to be a 4th line Pk ace.

No matter how Frolik ended up, Bowman wasn't envisioning that when he handed him his contract. It worked out differently...but Bowman didn't make an active choice at the time to overpay a 4th liner.
The problem is that some had more accurate assessments of Frolik and knew he wasn't going to be top 6 before the deal was inked. That was the mistake Stan made, overestimating Frolik's ability.

Not a disaster, just a mistake.
