To me he is a third pairing guy who kills penalties, not a 3.5M player. Matt Greene is one of the few guys in that role I think is worth his money, he's more valuable than Allen and doesn't make as much.

Lots of teams were after him, drove up the price. He's a guy who could have been had on the trade market, too.

Souray is a better player, he's just highly prone to injury. He did a nice job in Dallas last year for the most part, they would have gladly re-upped at the same terms, almost 1.5M less than the Ducks paid though.
