Several of us were laughing at this Wednesday night at the Worcester Sharks game because history is coming full circle.
Roy Boe used to own the Icecats, and basically forced the Blues to buy the team when Boe was granted an expansion franchise in Bridgeport.
The Blues didn't want to own the team, and after a few seasons got an offer from Bruce Saurs and Anne Griffith to purchase the team and move it to Peoria and renamed the franchise the Riverman.
And now, although for different reason than the Boe fiasco, the Blues are forced to purchase the Rivermen from Saurs and Griffith.
Luckily for Peoria fans the ownership group of the Blues isn't the same bunch of idiots that used to own the team, so I think they'll be fine for the near future.
