I realize the concern is that we'd have to give up too much for Miller, but he's much more intriguing to me RIGHT NOW than Thomas or Brodeur would be. Miller is actually playing really good on an absolutely terrible Buffalo team. Put our Blues in front of him and that could be something special. Thomas or Brodeur would be interesting as well, but at this stage of their careers are they going to be able to catapult the Blues over that hump? I don't know. They have the resumes, but they're also a few years beyond their prime.
Personally, I'd hate to see Halak leave for nothing and yet I agree he's probably the odd man out. I say you try to do something with him. It would be really nice if him or Elliott would just take the reins as the undisputed #1 but they both seem like #1B's to me. That's nice because they're both fairly reliable, but it is bad because they seem to lack that killer instinct and consistency that leads to success come playoff time. Maybe this year would be different, but I just don't know.
Yeah, I agree. Take all 3 in their prime and he might be my 3rd choice (albeit a GREAT 3rd choice to have). But, they aren't in their primes. And, if we trade for somebody, I think it should be somebody that can be here past this year. I wouldn't mind being wrong on Elliott, but I doubt he's back. Without knowing the FA market, he sounds like a good option to pair with Allen. Of course, that could change depending on cost, both prospect-wise and dollar-wise. But, if it's an upgrade this year on a Cup run and it solves a goalie question for the next couple of years, I'm intrigued.
