I think some of you just throw names out there that sound good to pretend to know more than Bowman. And if you think Allen is going to sign for 3yrs @ 3.38mil, you're dreaming.
Allen can PK and play responsible defensive hockey for 20 minutes a game, both things that Oduya cannot do. Allen is also much better along the boards and in front of the net than Oduya is. Sure he isn't a hitting machine, doesn't mean he doesn't address needs.

Yes he will make more but I'd take what it'd cost to get him over Oduya's contract any day of the week.
