And while I realize he's no PMD, I mean the guy turns the puck over more than most rookies.

Additionally, I didn't think he looked that great with Fowler. I thought they've been our weakest pairing all season.

Fowler should be with a steady as a rock defenseman who can drop the gloves if the other team forwards take runs at thim. Allen is a rock and can drop the gloves but there has been positive about his steady play.
allen likes pinching and what not for some reason.. he just needs to keep his game SUPER SIMPLE and let fowler/partner do the rest. honestly if vatanen's job was to purely move the puck up the ice and allen's job was just to be a nasty SOB then i think that'd pairing would be ok. but when you have allen pinching or trying to make a long stretch pass, that pairing just implodes..

lindholm and allen could potentially be a good pairing
