I think Allen can really be a solid 50 game starter next year and can get us to the playoffs if the defense in front of him proves their worth.
I agree about his play but if he gets shelled next year, it could really hurt his career. There is no reason to push him in the goal when we have two guys ahead of him and either one is more than capable of splitting some games with him next season making it a earn the spot kind of deal. We are in a "win now" position but to me, that doesn't mean 2014, it means 2014 and beyond. I do not believe there is any reason why Allen should start 50 games next year.

My vote is either Elliott or Miller (so long as we dont give much up for him) as the 1a/and Allen as the 1b. Just as we could use a stopgap center, the same could be said for a stopgap goaltender
