Allen hasn't played enough games to simply give him the backup job by sending Elliott down.
If Allen starts to struggle, the Blues will probably send him down and let Elliott try to win the backup job back.
The problem with sending Ells down is that we are going to take a hit on his contract, whether he clears waivers or not (1.8m for 2 years as it stands, have no idea how much we'd be responsible for if a team cleared him off waivers) and I think given the team's economic situation that they're going to keep him and Halak as-is (unless they're traded or packaged off for a trade, of course), especially considering Jake isn't costing us jack atm.
I didn't say they will send Elliott down. They won't.
No, Glen suggested they should, which is why I quoted HIS post first.
You're talking about if they send Allen down, etc. I got that.
If you noticed, I quoted both of you because I was trying to figure out what the ramifications would be if we did and threw it out there because the subject was on sending a player down and the whole waivers system. I don't know it very well, so I brought it up.
Make sense now?
