Allison returning to Toronto?

Jason Allison’s time with the Toronto Maple Leafs may not be over.

Sources say the Leafs are among a number of teams expressing interest in the free agent forward’s services. One of the teams is rumoured to be the Calgary Flames.

Allison recently met with Toronto to discuss the possibility of his return and there is speculation which suggests that the Maple Leafs may table an offer by the end of the week to keep the veteran for at least another season.

In 66 games last season, Allison scored 17 goals and added 43 assists for 60 points.

    OK, I am obviously not amused either by the prospect.

    On the other hand, this guy was, at one time, a consistent fixture among scoring leaders.

    Considering it was his first year back, there is a possibility that he could actually do even better this year and he is still only 31.

    I still think he would look awful good in Calgary.

    He takes way too many bad penalties, and is only decent on the powerplay, if they keep him, then he is their second line center, there must be a better alternative out there.

    We should have a race to see who’s slowest. I watched the Leafs all year and Allison is painfully slow. I know how slow Hatcher is, with his bad knees and all.

    Looser is us for having to watch them!!!
