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.
