I would like to welcome Rangers beat writer Andrew Gross. His work can be found here , and he can also be found on twitter @AGrossRecord .


Q: What are your thoughts on the Rangers signing Alex Frolov?

A: The cynical answer would be that the Rangers have been there/done that before as Frolov could remind one of Alexei Kovalev or Nikolai Zherdev. Or both.

However, GM Glen Sather has always shown himself as a man who likes giving others second chances and, at one year, $3 million, this is actually a low-risk, high-reward move for the Rangers.

Frolov clearly showed he has no desire to go to the KHL and seems to understand a bad season in New York might bring about that scenario. So he certainly has the motivation to play well.

Of course, the same could have been said for Zherdev, who sulked his way through his one season with the Rangers, particularly when John Tortorella took over for Tom Renney.
