The Leafs announce Jason Allison coming to camp
The Toronto Maple Leafs have announced that former center Jason Allison has been invited to training camp to see if he still has anything left. Allison will attend the Leafs training camp without a contract and has not played in the NHL since the 2005-06 season. Brian Burke wants to make the post season and he knows that the Leafs have nothing to lose by giving the 34 year old a chance to crack the lineup, if he made the team, he would most likely being offered the league minimum in salary. Jason Allison's greatest season in the league was the 2000-01 with Boston where he notched 95 points in 82 games. The best part of Allison is we wont need instant reply to watch any of his goals as he is not the fastest skater in the league from what most of us Leaf fans remember. We just want to offer Jason Allision the best of luck as he looks to revive his NHL career.
