Alexander Frolov: He's a talented forward who many believe can get better, even if Frolov has had a couple of 30-goal seasons and five more with at least 20 in seven years with the Kings. But Los Angeles is building something special and really didn't want the 28-year-old around. So Frolov was left to walk and drew more interest from KHL teams than NHL clubs. The Rangers took a $3 million chance for one year. Frolov could turn out to be a steal for New York, or he could be in for a long year under coach John Tortorella. Either way, he's playing for his NHL future.
...i'm in the camp of Frolov having a comeback season. He has too much to lose not to be at his best. The fact that the Rangers were the only team interested this off-season shows that the league is down on him, so if he wants that big contract next year he's going to have to prove he deserves it.
