A few have said they don't think Allison will ever come back . . . does anyone have any current info on him? I know there's a sticky on him in the Kings message board, but that hasn't been updated recently. Do you really think he's done, or do you think he'll return next year (assuming there is a season)?
If Allison returns at even 70% of what he was before then I think the top takes it easily. You can complain about Jagr's attitude problems, but it's hard to measure the "locker room effect". Going by numbers alone, if you take the three years Jagr was in Washington and Alfredsson's three BEST seasons over his ENTIRE CAREER then you'll see that Jagr has still outscored him . . . so, by numbers alone (the easiest way to compare players) Jagr has the definite advantage.
