I doubt Sather was bringing him back anyway. Although it's good to see that now it won't even be a possibility.

No surprises there. He was done in the NHL.

Yeah, I can't see anyone being sad over this. Frolov was a total non-factor and I think Frolov also knew he wouldn't be re-signed.

I always liked Frolov as a player for the Kings. I had hoped he could bring us some good secondary scoring this year, but it wasn't to be I suppose. Eh, too bad.

So did I.

But it's just our luck... Decent players magically turn into crap over the summer before they actually get here.

Had decent hopes for Frolov, it just wasn't meant to be. Wasn't a problem when he was here at all, just couldn't score. Expected him to sign in Russia. Best of luck and thanks for the wraparound trophy, Fro.

Anyway, if I see another thread on the main board comparing the NHL and the KHL, I'll send the OP the bill from my cardiologist.

Not really an issue, because I doubt the Rangers planned to sign him. But, I'm curious how Frolov can sign a contract with the KHL when technically, he isn't a free agent until July 1. I believe there is an agreement between the NHL and KHL that they will respect each other's contracts.

Did the Rangers give Frolov permission to negotiate with the KHL? Otherwise, this seems like some king of tampering by Avangard Omsk...

As compensations to the Rangers, I think they should have to take Drury and Redden, too.

Frolov's going to flourish in Russia. He has all that room to skate in, make himself open... and get to the back of the net to try to stuff it on the other side.

Seems to be the common trend with thse "supposed" high end players that come to NY. Really getting sick of it to be honest.

And not surprised to see Frolov signing overseas. Best of luck to him there. Hopefully he will succeed over there.

Frolov's stint with the Rangers ruined my view on him. He was a great player for the Kings, now when I think of him... ugh.

joking aside, i'm sure the Rangers gave their blessing, he had 0% chance of even getting an offer here.

Did anyone see that feature where Frolov and Boogaard spent a day with a bunch of preschoolers at Build-a-Bear?

That's all I think about when I hear about them at this point. It was so awkward and unintentionally hilarious, weirdest pair of guys to have kids hang around with.

Frolov didn't play bad as a Ranger. I thought he fit into the system very well, he just couldn't produce.

Same thoughts. The guy tried, and did absolutely every thing he could..... except he couldn't score. Which unfortunately is what he was brought here to do.

397 points in 579 in NHL reg season. 4 points in 6 Playoff games.

Definately not going to hurt KHL, he is 28 and has a lot of good years ahead of him.
