Allen is Vancouver's only true stay at home crease clearing bruiser. he's quickly becoming a poor man's Hatcher. with Baron gone Vancouver needs his play... not to mention at his progression rate he'll be top-4 by the end of the season.

it's not like Jonsson isn't an appealing defensemen, it's just that we need Allen too much at this point.
