Actually Allison is a physical hockey player that likes to mix it up a bit he was signed on a two way deal and was headed to the Ads until the injury bug hit Kloucek again. Do you really think any of these guys would play if Schnabel and Kloucek weren't hurt? I don't. Schnabel would have (will have) been a fine replacement for Skrastins if you're talking about a stay-at-home defenseman, I'd even go as far as saying before the injury he was like the best stay-at-home defenseman we've had in uniform, he was everything Kloucek was supposed to be. Anyway, Allison and Neckar are results of losing Kloucek and Schnabel to injury not as much about replacing Karlis.
