His skating was never a strength, but it wasn't that terrible until his big injury in LA.

In the dead puck era especially, some lazy writers threw some Selke votes to anyone with a good faceoff percentage and halfway decent plus/minus. I assume Allison's votes were of that variety. Still shows that he wasn't considered a liability in his prime, like he was after his injury.
