So my question is this then, what do they do with Gelinas? He leads the league in Wins, GAA and Save %.
Do they release him? Trade him? and for what?
What overage player do they look to add?
And what pieces will be going to Mtl for Allen?
I know noone can answer all these but in your opinion what is the answer.
If I were Saint John and I had the chance to land Jake Allen I would hop all over that chance. Gelinas is doing a good job as of now, but as Jack Bauer said above he is playing infront of argueably the best team in the CHL. I think you may be able to trade Gelinas to a younger team or even a team like Bathurst who has a 20 spot open and if they trade Champion and don't recall Steeves he could fill the void for the rest of the season.
I think a guy like Emmanuel Boudreau from Rimouski could play a big role on your defence. He has Memorial Cup experience and will be available when the trading period opens.
As for a price tag on Allen. You would have to think something revolving around Huberdeau and someone like Despres at the draft and possibly a guy like Dannick Gauthier depending on the amount of picks involved.
Thats my opinion on it all.
