09:20 AM ET 06.29 | The Flyers' goalie vacancy has taken yet another twist with a name not previously in the mix. According to an NHL source here at this weekend's NHL draft, the Flyers have made some inquires with St. Louis Blues general manager Doug Armstrong about the availability of Jaroslav Halak, who lost the starter's job to Brian Elliott this past season. The 28-year-old Slovakian has one year left on his current contract with a $3.75 million salary cap hit. St. Louis isn't sure about what Halak's price tag will be on re-signing. Even more difficult for the Blues is that Elliott also has a year left and is making far less money -- $1.8 million -- but will be seeking starter's coinage next summer. "The Flyers have been told it's going to take a very good player, but it won't take one of their top guys, which Philadelphia was worried about," the source said. "He could be their No. 1."

The Flyers have the hots for Eastern European tenders. Maybe they should pry Khabyvodka from the Oilers.

It might work Roamer. I heard the Oil and Nux are talking about Schneider.

Haven't seen enough of Scheider and, the little I've seen, wasn't enough to sell me on him.

Seems like the only guy in Chicago that showed some passion after a Stanley Cup win. Everybody else at the party must've been given Nembutal laced KoolAid to drink on the way in.

Haven't the Flyers learned their lesson about Russian goalies?
