what he said...
– Lombardi said he talked to Alexander Frolov shortly after the (now-contested) Kovalchuk signing with New Jersey, but that it seemed clear that Frolov was interested in moving on.
what he meant...
yeah we came crawling back to Frolov, and the oft accused heartless enigma with no pride responded with a very composed, confident and emotional spit in our faces.
What can DL say?
"We couldn't get Frolov to play the game we wanted him to.
He didn't want to be here.
We got a player we'd been targeting since before the trade deadline."
Well that sucks. Good luck AFRO!
I'll miss Fro, but am at the same time happy as he deserved better than the way he was treated by the organization the past two seasons. All the same though, picking NY to bounce back with? Not the best decision.
Frolov-Prospal-Gaborik will be an excellent line. I hope Frolov enjoys huge success from this opportunity for career rebirth.
I wish him nothing but the best for the rest of his NHL career. Thanks, #24, for everything you brought to the Kings.
Now that I've had a moment to compose myself regarding Fro, my last comment, I hope he has great success in New York and never goes to Detroit where I've had nightmares of us seeing him 4 times a year as he becomes a hall of famer in their system.
