re your postings about the "sell" of the Frolov persona:
You could not be more correct. Its been offered now so many times, that it becomes like a mantra for management, to the point htye and everyone else begin to believe it. The other factors at work drive the sell, and it only remains to be seen as to what the return is.
And for those that think Frolov isn't already slated to be traded, ask yourself why a contract hasn't been offered to an impending UFA of Frolov's caliber.
What's the difference between a girl from USC and a parrot???
You can teach a parrot to say "NO!!!"...
A guy in a bar leans over to the guy next to him and asks, “Wanna hear a USC joke?” The guy next to him replies, “Well, before you tell that joke, you should know something. I’m 6’ tall, 200 lbs., and I’m a USC graduate. The guy sitting next to me is 6’2”, weighs 225, and he’s a USC graduate. The fella next to him is 6’5” tall, weighs 250, and he’s a USC graduate. Now, you still wanna tell that joke?"
The first guy replies: “Naw, not if I’m gonna have to explain it three times.”
