Bringing up Weber could be a possibility, but I expect that they'll want him in Milwaukee most of the year unless he's just dominant from the begining. Also, Weber makes 2x that of Allison at the NHL level.
It's not a big problem... I'm just saying that I'd prefer Lilja as our 7th man over Allison. IMO, he'd be a much better insurance policy. I think he's a serviceable 4th-7th NHL defenseman.
aside from York...none of our d-men had any lengthy injuries last season, unless you count Zidlicky's concussion in the playoffs, which wasn't lengthy.
