Allen will miss conciderable time with a broken foot. Seems Ellerby may be here to stay for awhile. Here is his shot at sticking with the big club. Let's hope he exceeds expectations. As for Allen, there is no timetable for his return but hopefully he's not lost for the season.
Ellerby has looked very comfortable so far this season, so I expect him to keep that up. Sucks about Allen though, since he has played well for us. Its unfortunate that he has to deal with all these injuries, because he would have been a very good defensive Dman otherwise.
