I'm a big Frolik fan...bummer. Once again, cap casualty. Hard to pay a 4th liner/swing guy 2.33mil though. Blackhawks have close to $14mil in cap space now - so things could get interesting on how they choose to spend it.
Glad he was able to get a Cup with Chicago. Hopefully he gets a chance to get back to a 20 goal scorer in Peg.
I understand the trade. These kind of guys are replaceable as much as we all grow attached and want them to stay. For the money, he just wasn't worth keeping for the price. Not in a salary cap era. I like that we've been able to clear space with guys who are replaceable more easily than guys like Ladd, Byfuglien, etc. were.
I hope Leddy is next. He can fetch ready now players.
