Blues trade Jake Allen to Montreal
« on: September 02, 2020, 12:16:49 PM »

Allen had 1 year left on his deal with a AAV of $4.35mil.

Habs get a quality back-up so Price doesn't have to play 81 games. St. Louis opens up some room for Pietrangelo.

Holy crap Jake Allen had a .927 save percentage this season??? In just 24 games but still who would have expected that.

Yeah, that's some interesting use of cap space.

Still leaves them with about $12-14mil in cap space with only Domi left to re-sign. And despite his recent agent change after the season he had he's not getting a massive deal.

Weird landing spot, considering the cap, but, reasonable value in terms of assets. Montreal has some cap space to play with, but a big chunk of that is likely required to re-sign Max Domi and Victor Mete.

Should note too considering how compressed next season will likely be teams having two capable goalies is going to be very important.

So you'd dump Freddie for a 3rd rounder and get Allen as a replacement so we could save 650K?

Who said anything about trading Freddy for a 3rd?

Their "playoff" appearance aside, they are supposed to be rebuilding a bit here too so it isn't like they need to go out and sign a bunch of guys in the offseason to try and be ultra competitive.  It's one year for Allen and its a guy you hopefully feel comfortable enough to let Price not play 65 games with or whatever the equivalent is going to be during the compressed season.

Curious then. What would expect Freddie to get? You must feel that Allen wouldn't be much, if any of a downgrade to make such a move and he basically brought in a 3rd. Leafs can't keep both.
