Mink and Arsene would be nice to have back. I'm not sure they will be with the signing of Sterling. I'm not sure how much money the Blues are willing to spend on Peoria.
Sure enough, Oystrick has the Phoenix logo next to him on NHL.com. Did that deal just happen yesterday?

EDIT: looks like Phoenix has signed Arsene also per Maine Hockey Journal.

With the Blues signing 3 players to 1-way contracts this week, looks like Peoria may see more of Porter, McRae, and Grachev than initially expected. Reaves most likely kept as the extra forward in StL. Still see a need for a Mink or similar style player.

Also, I'd expect to see a vet d-man signed. Can't go into the season with only 1 vet and all others with limited or no pro experience. Cole could see a decent amount of time on call-up.
