Ducks' Allen enjoying taste of playoffs

The games are too important for Ducks defenseman Bryan Allen to sit back and savor but this time is exactly what he wanted when he signed on as a free agent. It was two years ago when Allen jumped on a three-year deal the Ducks offered as they looked to upgrade their defense. And the 33-year-old veteran of 710 NHL games saw a chance to enjoy the taste of playoff hockey that had...

How Much is Bryan Allen Worth?

As each moment passes, we get closer to July 1st and the day that Carolina Hurricanes defenseman Bryan Allen becomes an unrestricted free agent. This might not seem like much to a casual observer because players leave all the time but to the Hurricanes, Allen leaving is a pretty big loss. In the general sense, defensive d-men like Allen are not that difficult to replace. If a GM...

Travis Yost: Bon Voyage, Filip Kuba; Is Bryan Allen Ottawa's Target?

Make sure to follow Travis on Twitter! -- The Ottawa Senators front office pulled few punches with respect to discussion about Filip Kuba's future as an unrestricted free agent. Although they lauded his play this season in a bounce-back year, the club balked at the thought of bringing him back on a similar price-tag -- one the front office believes he'll get in the open...

Bryan Allen Scoring Chances 2011-12

Over the next couple of weeks, I am going to take a player-by-player look at the Hurricanes' scoring chances to review their season's.

Allen's 1st goal lifts Hurricanes over Predators

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -- Bryan Allen scored his first goal of the season on a breakaway coming out of the penalty box, and the Carolina Hurricanes held on for a 4-3 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night. Nashville's Gabriel Bourque scored less than a minute later -- at 2:16 of the third period -- to cut Carolina's lead to 4-3 but the Predators couldn't tie it...

Matt Karash: Painful Saturday night / On the eve...Bryan Allen? Jaro Spacek?

Yesterday was a rough hockey night for Canes fans. If (and increasingly it looks like when) we officially bury this season, we will point to the abysmal stretch in the fall not a single game in February. This said, is it possible that yet again, the painful nail in the coffin that killed off a great last ditch effort came via a painful loss at home to one of those Florida teams...

Should the Hurricanes re-sign Bryan Allen?

The situation that the Hurricanes have with their current free agents has been scrutinized to death over the past few weeks and we all got a little relief a couple of days ago when Tuomo Ruutu was re-signed to a new deal. There is still one important player whose future with the team is uncertain and that, of course, is defenseman Bryan Allen. With names like Nicklas Grossman, Hal...

Bryan Allen's role reduction

Bryan Allen has arguably been the Hurricanes' best defenseman in this very forgettable season. He's played 18-20 minutes a night, is usually given the toughest assignments and has posted a 4.5 Corsi Rel. rating, which is the best among defensemen. Not only that, but he has been outperforming the entire defense corps when it comes to creating and preventing scoring chances...
