I interpreted VAN's defensive needs as a "positional" defensive-d partner for Ohlund-which Jonsson could fit very well. If a crease-clearer is what Van is after than KJ , obviously , would not fit the bill.
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.
