I am not certain where I said that but like most everyone else I get confused when I read what I write.

So I agree with you that Penner wouldn't have a spot on the team but King would over Frolov. Frolov would have been a terrible 3/4rth line utility player. Frolov over King as a top 6er no doubt.

My point was more that Fro would have been very poorly suited to play under TM or DS. I do want to say that I loved Frolov as a King and have always felt that he has been given a bum shake in retrospect by allot of Kings fans. His numbers where good and he always seem to be able to play under pressure.

Maybe he would play well enough for us today but if Max can bring his skillset to the NHL then he will be much better suited to succeeding in my opinion then Frolov would.
