I would not be surprised to see two of those players, or even all three, offered as part of a package for an NHL-ready physical LD prospect who is facing a numbers game in his current organization, or for additional picks in this year's draft.
McRae and Fairchild might be trade bait at some point, but I highly doubt Allen goes anywhere. He's had a rough year, but both of his two years in Peoria have been promising. I'd be surprised if they gave up on him after having a bad couple of months. If it's going to bring back a long term partner for Petro, sure. If it's just going to add another depth Dman or forward, I don't see the point. He still has the potential to be a very good NHL goaltender.
