It didn't take long for Alex Frolov to hate John Tortorella. Well, maybe hate's too strong a word for the struggling, enigmatic Russian who remains stuck on five goals while being relegated to the fourth line. Given how little he's performed, it's no wonder the former King fell out of favor last year under Terry Murray.
So, is it wise to voice your displeasure publicly with how you're being used when you haven't come close to earning a hefty salary? Haha. Too easy. Frolov wants more ice-time. Quite honestly, he could easily be scratched. The skating isn't the issue as he does that very well. Problem is he often skates around the net avoiding contact like the plague. The net's in front Alex. Either take some shots or park your ass upstairs permanently. Thankfully, he's only signed for a year.
Frolov has talent but he's the one wasting it. Not the coach, who made the decisions based on performance. Something Tom Renney rarely did. Now, if only Tort would consider sitting Mike Del Zotto and give Matt Gilroy another look. If Fro wants to get out of the doghouse, he's gonna have to put up or shut up. Case closed.
