That is WAY too much to give up for Marleau. I like Marleau a lot and think he would be a great fit on the Kings, and wouldn't mind him as the primary return for Frolov, but giving up Stoll as well just makes the deal stink like the unwashed children at Toyota Sports Center.
Phil Kessel has made it clear that he doesn't intend to negotiate any longer with the Bruins, his Toronto-based agent in recent days informing the Boston front office that the right winger's priority instead is to sign a free-agent offer sheet with one of the league's 29 other teams.
All of which doesn't necessarily mean that Kessel's days in the Hub are numbered.
The Bruins, per CBA rules and guidelines, still reserve the right to match any offer sheet Kessel signs, and if they choose to match they are only prohibited from trading Kessel for the first year of his new deal.
''No comment,'' Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli responded via e-mail early this afternoon when asked about Kessel's latest stance on negotiations.
Two league executives told Sun Media Wednesday they’ve heard talk the Senators, Sharks and Kings have discussed a three-way deal that would send Heatley to San Jose, centre Jarrett Stoll and winger Alexander Frolov to Ottawa and centre Patrick Marleau to the Kings.
GOOD! While I firmly believe Lombardi is itching to move Frolov, I'd like him to at least have the humility to see how Frolov meshes with this much-changed Kings lineup before he pulls the trigger. Not to mention keeping Stoll.
So Vermette signed a 5 year ext. with a 3.75 cap hit. Frolov's numbers are better but going off the deal Vermette got what could be a good deal for Frolov?
I would have to think Frolov's ext should be any where from 4.75 - 5.5 million a year.
I think you nailed it.
"It has not been a good day. I lost my glasses early this morning and I had to go buy a pair of 79 dollar reading glasses today. 79 bucks. You can literally get them at Costco, three-for-20." - Darryl Sutter's response to going up 2-0 in the series.
Not with the kings. He'll get more on the open market.
Like it or not, he's a goner. Get used to him wearing the winged wheel on his chest.
I think you may be correct. I was just telling a buddy of mine who is a HUGE Wings fan that he shouldn't be suprised to see Frolov taking passes from Datsyuk next year. I also believe that he'd sign for 4.5 million to play with Wings if that's all they could offer.

Too right. I'm a kings fan long gone on two decades, I like AF and his game. I've said for three years that Frolov plays the Detroit system, regardless of the uniform he's wearing. For our sake, I hope they trade him, 'cause otherwise (unless the Kings massively overpay or he and his agent are phenomenally drunk), he's gone.
