Bishop and Allen shared duties, but I think most people following the Blues would rate Allen significantly ahead of Bishop.

Bishop has tended to play a bit better at the NHL level, but there are questions about him as an NHL backup at this point. Allen, on the other hand is viewed as a likely NHL starter in the future.

The depth is allowing him to develop at a comfortable pace. Either Elliot/Bishop will be back in Peoria to provide competition for the starting spots (my money is on Bishop to lose that battle). But Allen is the goalie prospect that the Blues would be slowest to part with.
