As we reach Day 14 of the Ilya Kovalchuk saga; I began to put together a list of possible alternatives in case Kovy decides to go elsewhere. One of those options was obviously bringing back Alexander Frolov. According to Dmitry Chesnokov, a regular contributor on Yahoo's PuckDaddy blog, Frolov doesn't have much interest in returning to Los Angeles.
Frolov's agent: "We have a offers from a few NHL teams; 99% certainty Frolov won't stay in LA; Frolov will make a decision w/in 10 days."
Can't blame him really. His asking price will have to come down for any team to sign him but the Kings pretty much walked him out the door. Good luck to Fro wherever he goes. I think the Kings are going to miss him alot more than they realize. His puck-possession in the corners and constant wrap-around attempts frustrated fans but who else on the current team can do that?
