CSN Philadelphia’s Tim Panaccio reports on Friday that the Flyers have made inquiries to Blues general manager Doug Armstrong regarding Halak’s availability. Halak has split time the past two seasons with Brian Elliott and is in the final year of a contract that will count $3.75 million against the salary cap.
More, from Panaccio:
St. Louis isn’t sure about what Halak’s price tag will be on re-signing. Even more difficult for the Blues is that Elliott also has a year left and is making far less money — $1.8 million — but will be seeking starter’s coinage next summer.
“The Flyers have been told it’s going to take a very good player, but it won’t take one of their top guys, which Philadelphia was worried about,” the source said. “He could be their No. 1.”
