Frolov is not a sniper and not in the Ovie Kovy mold. He reminds me alot of Marleau in that they have all the skills and tools to be stars yet never really do it consistently

Here's DL thoughts on Frolov.

I said "Go if you wanna go
Stay if you wanna stay"
I didn't care if you hung around me
I didn't care if you went away
And I know you were never right
I'll admit I was never wrong
I could never make up my mind
I made it up as I went along

And though I treated you like a child
I'm gonna miss you for the rest of my life

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

I never had any time
And I never had any call
But I went out of my way just to hurt you
The one I shouldn't hurt at all
I thought I was being cool
Yeah, I thought I was being strong
But it's always the same old story
You never know what you've got 'til it's gone

If I ever catch up with you
I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

And if I ever catch up with you
I'm gonna love you for the rest of your life

All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you
All I need is a miracle, all I need is you

If Frolov walks... Kings really need a new GM

Definitely a legend in his own mind.

Perhaps if/ when we do sign him we should play him more often on the first line. Too often Frolov has been playing on the 2nd and third lines when we need to be playing our best players together more often.
The worst ever was after his 35 goal campaign he spent the next year on the third line. Granted that was under Crawford. Murray has been no saint either often giving Frolov 2nd and 3rd line minutes, game in and game out. I am amazed with the time he gets on the ice the amount of points he does put up on a low scoring team.
Sign him and PLAY him!

I do believe you are right though, i don't think he fits in completely with the system TM is instilliing, although despite that he still managed to squeeze in 32 goals.
Well, DL is definitely not one to say too many positive things about his own players, at least to this point since they're so young... He feels there's always another gear and always more to improve on and he's honest about it. I don't think what he's saying about Frolov is posturing so much as it's his honest opinion.

His public posturing in negotiations has actually been in defense of the player. During the Cammalleri, O'Sullivan and now Johnson negotiations, he often defended the players he was negotiating with when misinformation got out publicly (read: "Johnson is not asking for $5.5 million like all the media reports I hear" or when he told the media O'Sullivan is not "Holding Out," we've asked him not to come to camp until this is worked out which took the pressure off the player, theoretically).


I honestly don't know if Frolov will stay because of Dean's well described and at least partially if not completely correct reservations about the player. But I'm pretty sure based on past negotiations that he won't be disparaging the guy at all. If anything he'll defend him, and if he is forced to trade him, he'll be classy about it and get as much as he can for him.

It would just be a shame, he's a goal scoring left wing, which last time I checked was in short supply on this team.

It pains me to say it, but I think Frolov is gone. He is definitely not a DL guy, and DL does not like keeping "not a DL guy" types around. DL thinks Fro's effort is not there night in and night out, and I'm sure he doesn't think that'll change (the guy is 27) DL doesn't want the "bad example" around for the kids. I think it will be a mistake to get rid of him, but I just don't see him sticking around.

By the way the above post is sarcasm and not to be taken literally.
