Resolution: Go on the "Patrick Kane Workout Plan" and get stronger.
It's starting to look like Michael Frolik's lack of production in his short time with the Hawks last season wasn't a fluke.
Like teammate Patrick Kane did in the offseason, Mikey Fro needs complement his speed by increasing his muscle throughout the next few months and over the summer, otherwise he's going to be pretty much useless in the Blackhawks lineup until he's a free agent after the '14 season.
After tallying six points in October, Frolik scored just one goal in November and failed to add any helpers. December hasn't been too much better. Before the Christmas break, Frolik had scored just goals and one assist.
I was one of GM Stan Bowman's supporters when he re-signed the 23-year-old to a three-year, $7 million contract prior to the 2011-12 season, despite Frolik tallying a mere nine points in his 28 games with the Hawks last season after coming over from the Florida Panthers in a trade that swapped him and Jack Skille.
