Also, there is no guarantee that Suter will thrive with a regular NHL spot. He could fall flat on his face.
I don't think our gameday roster this year will have 7 d-men as much as past years. Also though Lilja may be a better d-man I think Allison is kept around more as a toughness factor which Lilja can't fill and Allison may still find himself a scratch incase of injury as one of the call ups will get the icetime if they can handle it.
