It's telling when the story for this re-signing is on the Peoria Rivermen's website. The Blues needed their AHL depth, and why not just stay within the organization and stick with players that you know? Saves you scouting time, certainly.
Adam Cracknell, who had three goals and four assists in 24 games with the Blues, played around twenty games too many with the club thanks to the unfortunate rash of injuries and the team's trading away of players at the deadline. With the Rivermen he was responsible for 17 goals and 21 assists in 76 games.
Say it with me, everyone: "Release the Cracknell!"
