Frattin is a guy you dont want to give up on early. He's got the skills to be a solid 3rd line player and potenial to be a 2nd liner. He came from the east wich is a different style of play. Id ive him another year to develop in our system and then evaluate him. Has Lewis ,Fraser, and Clifford been that much better than him?? Brown has 16 points this year and been a huge disappointment and he's been with the Kings for how long?? But everyone is willing to pick on Frattin. I just think we need to see more of him before were ready to give up on him. Being Kings fan from Canada I see alot of leaf games and seen him play he has the tools just needs to put it together and obviously this is what Lombardi saw.
I dont expect a ton from Lewis, and am rarely disappointed. He does what he does reasonably well though, and as long as Sutter doesn't send him out for any more shoot outs he even surprises me sometimes with his speed and energy.
Frattin seems like he is doing everything right. That is what worries me most, and makes me ready to ditch the guy. He has been damn near invisible EVEN when his play seems to be good, with nothing to fix I don't know how we expect it to get better?
I guess it could be said a lot of guys are looking good but not finishing, but I have seen that they can... Frattin seems to have the right approach and support... He has ice time and has been put into good situation and STILL can't even get a bounce. I am ready to write it off as good guy with good work ethic who just isn't worth having around because all of that gets him no where.
