What he does as a coach is put structure behind the natural ability of a goalie. Goaltending is all about playing the odds, making it so a shooter has to either be lucky or take a low percentage shot. What Allaire will do is make sure the goaltenders in the organization have good fundamentals, and their natural ability will enable them to make those saves that the practice and structure doesn't allow them to.
What I like about Allaire is that he incorporates the defense into the goalies game. Both the defensemen and goalie are always in sync. He's talked about it on numerous occasions.
