To revive my earlier urgings about looking at a deal involving Halak, I came across this article from the St. Louis Post Dispatch. I'll say upfront that I don't know anything about the journalistic standards or degree of insight by Jeremy Rutherford, but it seems like a bit of a rift between Halak and Hitchcock.

Halak has 1 more year on a 4-year contract with a cap hit of $3.75 mil; actual 2013-14 salary is $4.5 mil. He only played in 16 games this season, complicated by a wonky groin, with a less than good .899 save % and a 2.14 GAA.

For the right price, I'd be much more in favour of Halak than either Bryzgalov or Thomas. Read + 2nd?
