Since joining the Montreal Canadiens, Jake Allen has had time to analyze the skills of his teammates. The Habs has some good scorers on the roster, including Josh Anderson, Cole Caufield and Tyler Toffoli.

However, which player has the best, if not the most, power on the team? According to Jake Allen, there's no doubt that Josh Anderson has the heaviest shot.

"His shot is so powerful that I can feel it through my equipment."

At 6-foot-3 and 226 pounds, Josh Anderson can put a lot of weight into his shot, which is a big advantage.

Despite the heaviness of Anderson's shot, of all the players Allen has faced since arriving in Montreal, Jesperi Kotkaniemi dethrones the number 17, hands down.

With this statement from Allen, I really wonder if the Habs used KK's offensive assets correctly. Time and time again, I have seen Kotkaniemi's catch-and-shoot delivery. His shot was very underrated, the Habs could have used it greatly on the power play. He had both a powerful and accurate shot, a strength that the Habs have failed to exploit over the years. The organization lacked patience with him on this point...
