Jason Allison Coming Back To The Leafs
The Globe and Mail is reporting that the Toronto Maple Leafs have granted a tryout to one-time Leaf Jason Allison.
The report says that the 34-year old, who has not played in the NHL since the 2005-06 season, will attend the Leafs' camp next month without a contract. The Globe says that Allison approached the team about the idea of a comeback over the summer and Toronto agreed to have a look at him.
Here is what some people are saying:
"This guy was not a bad player and if the Leafs can get a couple good years out of him for little money this is a no brainer. He may not be a top line guy but second or 3rd." chrimact
"He's kind of slow, but he controls the play well and the Leafs need all the help they can get up front." ventsation
"is Burke taking GM advice from JFJ?" boosterleafs
Sure this guy is slow and very injury plagued, but hey they have not signed him and is he is only there to try out and see if he can make the team. He hasn't played in 2 years so hopefully he is past all those injuries, and when healthy and playing he is a point a game player or at least close to it. What was Sundin his last few years in Toronto? He was a point a game player if that.
