I also think his last name will bear a higher package in return.

As for my opinion on Allen, it's a hope, not a fact. You could be right on him. I could be wrong. He may not be able to handle the 2nd line duties. But from what i saw in Hfd, and the game he had up here, he was calm, composed, limits his mistakes, has really good positioning, is mobile, a big body, and will provide similar offensive output to Staal.

I think with a defensively responsible partner like Stralman or Klein, he'll blossom into a very important depth player for us. And most importantly, he won't be making anywhere near 6 million...ever.
the guy you describe in paragraph one seems like a perfect fit for the Rangers. I'll keep him!
