    Default Jordan Binnington

    Before the start of the season, everyone was saying Husso was the goalie of the future for the Blues. So far, hes not having a great season but Binnington have been pretty impressive and is now with the big club. With Allen being Allen, can he be a late bloomer and steal his net for the rest of the season?

    I'm not sure I'd call Binnington a late bloomer, goalies often take the longest, and have odd paths to starting.

    Binnington looked very good against the Flyers, of course, that is normal for a shutout, and the Flyers are sadly very erratic. Allen is only a stalwart in net in the eyes of Blues management, and while that counts a lot, he's really just an average NHL goalie, which is no impediment to somebody stealing the net. It's possible.
    10 team Head-to-head true dynasty. Roster 33, draft 2, cut down before season. Start 1 G, 1-2 backup G's, 6 D, 12 F arranged in 4 lines of 3. Only categories that matter are Goals, Assists, Save% with a shutout bonus. Having NHL teammates helps.

    G: F Andersen
    Backup G: Holtby
    D: Gardiner, M Reilly, Letang, Klingberg, Gostisbehere, Carlson
    F1: Voracek, Giroux, Couturier
    F2: Wheeler, Schiefele, Tavares
    F3: Benn, Seguin, MacKinnon
    F4: Stamkos, Point, JT Miller

    Bench:
    G: (none)
    D: Ekman-Larsson, Werenski, Orlov
    F: Pavelski, Bailey, Guentzel, Sprong, Killorn, Bjorkstrand, Tuch, Labanc, Donato, Necas

    Husso could still be the goalie of the future but this isnt the future, this is today and today Husso isn't ready. He could still be a couple years out. We don't know.

    Binnington has earned the call up and is playing well in the couple games he's had. As long as he keeps playing this well, he'll keep playing. That being said, Allen has also found a way to turn his game around lately. Right now I can see both guys seeing a regular rotation.

    I'm fortunate enough to have rostered JB's last two starts in a couple leagues...
    But PHI & MON... meh, not exactly powerhouse offensive teams right now.
    [I actually rostered Binnington against PHI because I thought it was a strong win% game for STL.]

    He does have a .926sv% over his last two partial AHL seasons (44gp) - and that IS pretty solid.
    But I still think Husso is future of STL (and Allen too, short term), who has been solid over last 2 months.

    Pushing Binnington to the NHL, I believe, was more about getting Husso the majority of the team's AHL starts - so as to further his development.

    Goalies are impossible to read when they are sort of good+ AHL level but never supremely hyped.
    Some pan out, some do not.
    And many do really well in the "no pressure" "just the back-up" roster spot.
    Then, when they get the chance to be the "counted-on 1A" goalie.
