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.
Well I'm pretty sure Frolov played with Handzus and Modin on the third line and also with Handzus and Simmonds. He killed penalties aswell. IMO Frolov would have no problem playing under Sutter as he seems to favor puck possession and Frolov had better hands than any regular LW on the Kings roster
