Well that was quick. Looks like Stralman will be out awhile.

Not sure about that. All they've said is they're unsure if he'll play Sunday and with Staal probably not ready, they need another body on defense just in case he can't go.

Might just be precautionary, AV said Stralman injury wasn't serious.

True, true. Here's hoping it's just a precautionary move.

Insurance move in case Stralman can't go. I'll be bold and say he sticks for one reason or another. Good luck kid

Hopefully Stals is good to go, but if not, congrats to Allen on getting called up to the big time

If Anton plays next game I wonder if Moore is getting benched in favor of Allen.He had another rough game defensively tonight.

I don't see why. I mean, Cody Franson should be enough.

Hope Stralman is good to play Saturday, but also definitely wouldn't mind getting a look at Allen. He was good in the preseason.

Our D Sunday should be pretty good with Franson in there

Never seen him play. Can he contribute for 20 MPG defensively at the NHL level yet? I'm afraid that Girardi and McDonagh are going to be over 30 MPG every night that Staal and Stralman are out. You can't give MDZ and Moore over 20 MPG. You can if you want to set the record for most goals allowed in a game. Besides that, you can't give these two 2nd D pairing minutes. At least not both of them.

In the Hartford thread, I wrote repeatedly in the recent weeks that he's not far from being NHL ready. Honestly, not sure he's already ready (he's being called up more because of the injuries than because his of own play) and people may be disappointed with him, but please keep in mind that this is his first pro season.

Allen is a steady, two-way presence. Don't expect him to come and wow you with some spectacular plays, but he might be a solid presence as our 6th defenseman.

Awesome. Love Allen. Underrated prospect within this organization. Definitely has the potential to be a valuable contributor. Reminds me of Andy Greene.

I thought Allen deserved the 7 spot purely based on his camp, but obviously there was no point keeping him up just to sit in the press box and get an occasional game ala Falk.

He looked very steady and calm with the puck in preseason. Fluid skater, and can play the right side if needed.

Excited to see what the kid can do if he manages to see game action.

He's been RD full time for the pack for awhile now.

More likely AV has seen enough of Falk for a while--with only 5 defenseman for the majority of the game Falk got less than 12 minutes.

Allen looked better in pre-season than Falk has played all season.

Not surprising since Allen played the right side exclusively during pre-season.

Allen maybe got into 4 off the top of my head and played 10 to 12 min a game? and people are comparing him to NHL players after barley seeing them??

Rangers played 6 preseason games. Allen played in 3. Against the Flyers, Oilers and Kings. He paired with Staal against the Oilers so I'm sure he got his share of ice time in that one. The pairs against the Kings were Moore/Stralman, Del Zotto/Bickel, Falk/Allen. Allen played the right side pretty much if I remember right throughout training camp and in those games. The Flyers had the likes of LeCavalier, Simmonds, Hartnell, Voracek and Coutourier in their lineup. The Oilers had the likes of Schultz, Hall, Hemsky, Eberle, and Perron in their lineup. The Kings pretty much had their full lineup with the exception of Justin Brown.

What I remember of Allen is he played very well. His positioning was good. He was calm with the puck--not a panicky type. Moved the puck well. His size is fine. Average physicality. He's had a good rookie year in Hartford.

More obvious that this call up is insurance in case Stralman and Staal can't go on Sunday than it means DZ is being traded--though DZ might be on the way out--Allen's coming up is to fill holes. With McIlrath out short term and I believe Bickel is out as well--the other options would have been Aaron Johnson who has extensive NHL experience but who is a left sider or Danny Syvret.

I'd be thrilled if we get that from him. Definitely a nice look
