Michael Frolik

Remember when I mentioned good players that will get paid like great players? Frolik can be a great asset at the right price, or a burden at the wrong price.

Michael Frolik has the speed and offensive ability to play with either superstar center for the Pittsburgh Penguins.  He can be a bit of a streaky scorer, but so was James Neal and he did alright for himself alongside Evgeni Malkin.

If Winnipeg doesn’t resign Frolik, which doesn’t seem likely at this point, he’s likely going to get a nice payday this summer.  But, the fact that he has yet to top the 50-point mark in the NHL could bode well for Pittsburgh.  He isn’t someone that’s going to create a ton of offense on his own, but as a compliment to Sid or Geno he has the potential to get you 30+ goals.  Teams without those types of playmakers to boost Frolik’s production may not want to get into high dollar amounts for him.

Or, maybe I’m giving NHL GM’s too much credit.
