I just want to make sure people realize that Jake Allen is a good goalie and he is playing amazing as our backup this year, 927 sv% at the time of this post and we will not forget the year Jake Allen played out of his mind to get the Blues to the conference finals. I know we all get frustrated with him at times but as a backup goaltender while Binnington finishes developing we must appreciate and not abandon hope in our goalies. Blues fans are quick to dog pile on goalies historically (I still love you Brian) so now that we are a Cup Champions we must give recognition to those that got us here. Jake Allen for all his faults in his game at the end of the day is really good at his job. When he was asked to be the number one, come playoff time, he got his job done. We asked him to take a backseat to the hot young Binnington, and he accepted his role and welcomed Jordan with open arms and supported him every step of the way. Jake Allen is a good person, a great teammate, and an amazing backup goaltender for the St Louis Blues and I hope one day when the Blues need to move his contract we recognize all that he did for us.
