Report: Blues re-sign Elliott.

Blues re-sign Elliott.

ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH’s Jeremy Rutherford reports via Twitter the St. Louis Blues have re-signed goaltender Brian Elliott to a two-year extension. Financial terms to follow…

**UPDATE** Chris Johnston of Canadian Press reports it’s worth $3.6 million.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: That’s a cap hit of $1.8 million per season. Nice, affordable move by the Blues to retain their All-Star netminder, without going crazy to retain him. His contract is still considerably cheaper than Jaroslav Halak’s, and I have no doubt that’ll spark rumors of the latter being shopped, but I don’t believe that’s what the Blues have in mind. They’ve got a terrific tandem  between the pipes, and have no reason to split them up.

  1. Good cheap signing and def nobody shopped. Elliot is only having his first truly great season and they should wait to see if he maintains it, if he does next year Halak could be shopped, but not until next year sometime.
