Not been the best of seasons for Jake Allen, but he has had good numbers over the past couple of years and is only 22. I have my doubts over him becoming a regular NHL starter, but I could certainly see him performing the type of role that Brian Elliott did last season.
Binnington and Lundström is more interesting because they are the same age, but in different situations. Lundström is doing a decent job splitting time in net for AIK in the SEL at 19 and has a legitimate chance of being the #1 for them next season. Binnington is doing really well in the OHL, and it might just be the fact that it is the junior Leagues that he feels further away.
Halak and Elliott both UFA's at the end of next season, we have to imagine that one (probably Elliott) will leave. Probably Allen to get that spot, but will be interesting to see if Lundström would be in a position to challenge for it that soon.
