Canadiens Rumors: Analyst Says One Team Should "Aggressively" Pursue Jake Allen

NHL analyst Martin Biron has highlighted the strategic importance of the Colorado Avalanche "aggressively" pursuing Montreal Canadiens goalie Jake Allen to bolster their goaltending lineup.

With the Avalanche's current primary goalie, Alexandar Georgiev, shouldering a heavy workload, leading the league in both games started and minutes played, the need for a reliable backup is critical, especially as the team prepares for the rigors of the playoff season.

Biron's analysis suggests that bringing in Allen could provide the necessary relief for Georgiev and add depth to the team's goaltending options, ensuring they remain competitive in their quest to defend their Stanley Cup title​.

Jake Allen's experience and performance under pressure make him a valuable asset for any team looking to strengthen their goaltending.

With a career spanning over 400 games and a solid .908 save percentage, Allen's ability to perform in crucial moments could be particularly beneficial for the Avalanche as they aim for another deep playoff run.

His presence could offer not just immediate support but also a strategic advantage for Colorado's goaltending strategy in the upcoming seasons​.

With various teams reportedly interested in Allen, including the Carolina Hurricanes, Los Angeles Kings, and New Jersey Devils, among others, the trade landscape remains complex. Photo Credit: Eric Bolte-USA TODAY Sports
