A look at Kings' unrestricted free agents

The Kings now have to look toward next season, when change is sure to come. They have six players who are now unrestricted free agents and three more who are restricted. Some of these players may not be back. Here are the names, their 2009-10 salary, key stats and comments from The Times hockey Hall of Fame columnist Helene Elliott.


Alexander Frolov , $4 million; 19 goals, 51 points. The talk is he wants a new deal for $5 million per season. Have fun in Russia in the Kontinental Hockey League, Fro.

Fredrik Modin,$3.5 million; 3 goals, 5 points in 20 games after trade from Columbus. Had moments when he was useful but not enough.

Raitis Ivanans
,$600,000; 0 points, 136 penalty minutes. Played more games without scoring a point than anyone in the NHL. Can’t waste a roster spot on him anymore.

Jeff Halpern, $2 million; 2 assists in 16 games after trade from Tampa Bay. Brought in for experience but proved too slow and unproductive to have impact.

Randy Jones
, $3 million; 5 goals, 21 points. Wasn’t the same after a December head/neck injury. Coach Terry Murray loves him, but Jones makes too many bad reads and bad decisions.

Sean O’Donnell, $1.25 million; 3 goals, 15 points. He was the conscience of the team and a good mentor to Drew Doughty and Jack Johnson, but too many games were too quick for him.

    Frolov is a valuable player, but for 3 million, which is fair….. 4 million if u over pay….. but 5 million is way too high…… ur right, "welcome to the KHL"
