Yea I'm comparing two different styles of player because the Hawks need one style of player more than another. Yes this team is built around quickly getting the puck out of the zone and moving it up the ice in transition but if we can't get the puck out of the zone because our d corps is weak along the boards then what's the point?

Oduya is the 4th best player on the team at rushing the puck in transition and making breakout passes. The 4th. What this team needs is balance, not an overpaid average at moving the puck d man.

With a player like Allen you have balance in the line up in the d pairings are made up properly. With Oduya you deepen the problem of being unable to activate your transition game due to being stuck in your own end.
