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.
