Rumblings: Blues sticking with three goalies -- for now


For the foreseeable future, the Blues are comfortable carrying three goalies.

Brian Elliott is still working on his getting his A-game back after missing time with a knee injury. Jake Allen has been better of late but inconsistent overall. And veteran Martin Brodeur at this point is the No. 3 insurance man.

It’s not ideal, but the Blues are comfortable running with it for a while.

The fact that Brodeur has a $125,000 roster bonus payable Feb. 1 is worth remembering. And he’s got another $125,000 roster payment March 4, as well.

I suspect the Blues could perhaps make a call on the future Hall of Famer’s situation around the All-Star break later this month.

Keeping him remains a possibility. But finding a trade for him is another option.
