07:30 AM ET 08.13 | In St. Louis, increased depth has fans eyeing a strong season, and nowhere is that depth more evident than between the pipes. Could the Blues actually have three No. 1 goalies? -- Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott shared the Jennings Trophy two seasons ago and Elliott has been an All-Star. Then there's Jake Allen, who led rookie goalies last season in wins and goals-against average. "I don't know where we would have been last year without Jake, and I don't know where we would have been without Elliott's strong finish," [GM Doug Armstrong] said. ... Coach Ken Hitchcock has done a masterful job finding time for Halak and Elliott the past two seasons, but will he be able to add Allen to the equation? And if the 22-year-old has to spend the season in the minors, will he have the right attitude?

The one you trade goes on to win the Vezina Trophy and the two you keep have a GAA over 4. Just ask Holmgren, he'll tell you.

Great goaltending, excellent defense. The Blues are going to lose a lot of games 1-0.

Trade one of them for a forward that can put the puck in the net.

both are risky moves. The trouble with goalies is they need a lot of work to stay sharp (ala` LOTF) but if you trade the wrong one.....
