Frolik isnt worth 2.333 cap hit. Not going to be tendered next year at that number and Im sure Stans looking for possible trades with 4 forwards waiting to move up.

Frolik is a great PK guy and shows effort every game. He was one of the few CONSISTENT players during the Cup run.

In other news, Krüger said he would love to return to the Hawks

Frolik's problem isn't his role, it's his paycheck. The guy's soaking up some big money for a guy who's a 4th line defensive specialist. Kruger came on and surprised me all season long. I really hope they keep him around to anchor that bottom line.

Frolik is one of the last guys I want to see traded. Yes, he's overpaid, but like I've said before... I'm ok with him being overpaid.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Bickell camp and Hawks have made progress on talks, closer to a deal, but still not done at this point. #Blackhawks

Frolik can chip in enough offense to play a more traditional third line role - a line that doesn't exist on this team - and was arguably our most consistent forward all spring.

He's a guy you win with. I'd like to see him around for a long time.

@ChrisKuc: Source says #Blackhawks and restricted free-agent defenseman Nick Leddy are not yet talking about a new contract but likely will meet soon.

I am surprised

I know Bickell is priority right now but still figured Stan would be talking to Leddy's agent

tender him and you have time... Offer Sheets rarely happen. If they happen, match them.

Offer sheets aren't THAT rare. Would much rather see the Hawks set the price and not some other team.

But getting the player to sign them is.

According to Chris Kuc on Twitter Bowman quoted as saying talks with Bickell are "looking really good".

Sweet. Both sides want to get it done. Fans do too.

No one is saying Frolik isn't a good player who worked really hard and played his role excellently he did.

All people are saying is that for his role, as a 4th line W and PK guy, no matter how well he plays it, isn't worth 2+ million dollars and I agree with that.

So about one per year. Thought there was usually a few per offseason. I stand corrected.

Right, but who cares about unsigned off sheets?

I can't speak for anyone else, but my contention is that Frolik is more than a fourth liner and I'd love to see him take Stalberg's spot on the third line.
