I know they have the roster full right now. But if something unforeseen happens or someone gets hurt I want to stay ready in case they need someone."
You know you suck when you're staying ready in case an AHL team wants you...

Not after Primeau turned his face into Oatmeal.

Yeah, he really took it easy after Primeau broke his nose and dropped him. I'm sure McAllister could have gotten up and killed Primeau if he wanted to. It's a good thing he didn't *sigh of relief*.

If you get a chance to watch the footage again, you'll see that McAllister is pretty much just defending and kind of surprised that Primeau is coming at him with such fury. It was his teammate for crying out loud. McAllister didn't go at him hard.

McAllister can beat the living hell out of Primeau, and that's all there is to it.

Regardless of who won the fight, Primeau is a very good fighter when he has to be. McAllister always could throw them, but unfortunatly for him that's about all he's good for.

The guy is a painfully slow skater. I don't want to see him anywhere near the Phantoms, mostly because I don't want him taking a roster spot from one of the kids.

I always find it funny how players seem to flock back to the Flyers, and this area in general after their careers are over/on hold, ect. The organization must be doing something right, just as long as McAllister or Therien never find their way back on the squad.

I'll say it again if you would like. Our Captain is not invincible. McAllister is a much more coordinated fighter than Primeau is. According to NHLPA.com, Chris stands at 6'8'' and weighs in at 260lbs. Keith rings in at 6'6'' and 230lbs.

That Primeau vs. McAllister fight was probably nothing more than McAllister being a little rough in practice, Primeau gets frustrated and his ego gets the best of him so he feels like he must throw some fists at McAllister to show who's boss. If you actually get a chance to see the fight again, McAllister isn't exactly into it. Keith is all pissed off, and McAllister seems like he isn't sure what he's supposed to do.

In a real fight, I'll take McAllister any day. He's a monster with good balance and a lot of power.

Watch some highlights here: http://www.nhl-fighters.host.sk/videos/videos_en.php

I'm sorry, but Primeau does not fight quite as dominantly as McAllister. Watch him drop two large, competent fighters with his right-handers.

I like Primeau, but that doesn't mean I have to be completely ignorant. I've seen Primeau fight, and it isn't pretty. He's sloppy, uncoordinated, and he doesn't exactly defeat any titans.

Primeau isn't a good fighter. No matter, he won't be fighting anytime soon w/ those concussion problems.

Chris McAllister

Well another dude from my province. Yah watched him in Jr. A i guess the league(SJHL) prefers to be called. a step down from the CHL.
As well as the horid and omg these guys could win a few games Saskatoon Blades.

A typical guy from here, McAllister is. Small, finesse player just like the Hammer, and Dave Brown and Ed Van Impe. . Its gotta be the water, and i haven't found that batch of water yet lol.

I have a job that suits Chris' skillset.

There is a big pothole at Keele and Eglinton. He would be the perfect pylon for it, in a vintage orange Flyer jersey of course, with an orange toque.
