Avs Acquire McAllister from Flyers

KKFN radio just reported that the Avalanche have acquired Defenseman Chris McAllister from the Flyers for a 6th round pick. I realize that this is not huge news, but this indicates that they are trying to groom Scott Parker as the force in front of the net that they are lacking instead of his standard enforcer role, which would be handled by McAllister..

So, theoretically, this could take them out of the running for Owen Nolan or any other “netcrashing” type of player that they have been rumored to trade for.

BTW — has anyone seen McAllister fight? I know he’s HUGE (6-8, 240), but don’t know much else…thanks!
