Halak has reportedly signed a 4 year deal worth 15 million dollars with the St. Louis Blues earlier today. Halak is coming off a strong season where he went 26-13-6 with the Montreal Canadiens posting a .924 save percentage and 2.40 goals against average. Most notably, Halak played tremendously in the playoffs upsetting both the Washington Capitals and Pittsburgh Penguins before falling to the Philadelphia Flyers in the Eastern Conference Finals.
If you ask me, St Louis over payed quite a bit, but Halak has shown some flashes of brilliance. His ability to sustain it consistently for an entire season though has not yet ben proven. St.Louis has a lot of cap space remaining ($20,735,000) so the signing should not hinder them too badly. _X_
