Do St. Louis Blues Plan on Keeping Jaroslav Halak and Brian Elliott?

There have been many reports that the St. Louis Blues may be willing to part with either Jaroslav Halak or Brian Elliott, but is there any truth to all of these rumors?

St. Louis Blues GM Doug Armstrong seemed willing to move one of his Jennings Trophy winning netminders for the right price at the draft, but would he still consider the move.

A couple days ago we reported on rumors that Halak was on his way to Philadelphia, but will a trade actually happen?

According to Andy Strickland, the Blues intend to keep both of their netminders around for the 2013-14 season:

Armstrong indicated he expects Halak, Elliott, and rookie Jake Allen each to be members of the Blues when camp begins. The goalie conversation has been the most talked about subject between Armstrong and Head Coach Ken Hitchcock this off-season. Both understand the value of the position and that you can never have too many bodies.

Even though Armstrong may be indicating they will both be in camp, he will surely be listening to any offers that come his way.  The Blues are looking to improve their team this offseason and one way to do so may be to move one of their goalies.

What do you think Blues fans, will Halak or Elliott be moved this offseason?  Who would you want to see packing their bags if you had to pick between the two?  What kind of a return do you think the Blues could get for either?  Let us know in the comments below.

More as we have it.
