before we made the trade for Halak, I thought Elliott would have been a great option for the note, I thought he wasn't getting much team support in senators, so when we signed him, I was kinda happy. but wasn't sure how it would work with Halak, and I agree last season we insane by both goalies. but, my only issue is Halak kinda gets banged up alittle easier than I think he should, and at times when he hits his rough spots, he seems to completely shut down and even his body language acts like he gives up. so I have a hard time putting all my eggs in his basket without a strong plan B if needed. But, I kinda agree that next season will be elliott's last in st. louis, unless something crazy happens. But, I would hope that we would try to trade him at the deadline next season and get a pick or something for him, and then allen can have a half of season in minors and then get a little taste of being a regular NHLer and not just a fill in and then sent back down to peoria. Also, Jordan Binnington will be 20 next season, and will no longer be able to play juniors, so he would need to either report to Alaska or Peoria. So, I think it would be natural to move Allen up to start his journey to unseating Halak as the Blues' #1.
