Kevin Allen of USA today, who actually is a pretty underrated insider, spoke to Rick Dudley(Gm of Atlanta) and Dudley told him that he Gauthier up and inquired about Halak. Gauthier had asked for Patrice Cormier for Halak. Dudley said he declined the offer and never called Gauthier back.

I wonder how much Halak was really worth, when Atlanta didn't even want to give up Cormier, who imo is a lesser prospect than Eller.
