I really doubt Allison would help. He's slow and was -19 last year !!!
Sure he put up 60 points but he was -19 !!!
Do you really want a guy like that taking ice time away from younger guys ??
We got rid of Ribs because he was slow and bad on Defense.
Go get Lang !
True that he's very slow . But about the -19 , , don't forget that he was playing for the Leafs ( ! ) , and that most of his points were from the powerplays ( don't count for the plus minus stats )
Lang would be great , but to gets him , Gainey needs to give Bonk before , because of the $$$ cap .
Amen, brother! If Allison had any value left, he would have been resigned by the Leafs, given his 60 points in 66 games for them last season. Allison used to be a slow skater with poor acceleration, which is something that is very exploitable in today's NHL. I doubt that he'll sign with anyone this season.

Gotta pass on both. Give our youth a chance. Higgins and Ryder benefited from more playing time and I don't think anyone would trade them for Allison or Bure. Let Perez, Lats, Pleks, and Kosti do the same. We have enough veterans. We don't need has-beens.
