What's worrisome about Allen is that he's had his knee surgically repaired a number of times now and he's definitely lost a step or two along the way. Now, the good news is that he's averaging about 19 minutes a night, which makes for a great third pairing defender. If the Flyers are going to go with a top four of Timonen, Coburn, Carle and Meszaros, then yeah, Allen fits right in and can be paired with a guy like Gustafsson who can roam a bit more. Not sure if Bourdon would be a great fit with Allen though.
