from Aaron Portzline of the Columbus Dispatch,
For almost two years since Adam Foote walked out on the Blue Jackets at the NHL trade deadline, fans have waited for the former captain to walk back into Nationwide Arena.
Foote missed both trips to Columbus last season with the Colorado Avalanche because of an injured triceps, but he’s expected to be in uniform for a game tonight.
“I’ll be ready for whatever,” Foote said, when asked what kind of crowd reaction he expected. “It’s a business. The (Blue Jackets) have moved on, and I’ve moved on. I had a great time when I was here. I got to see a young team changing.
“I’ve moved onto something else, and they’re still going forward, which is good for them and the fans.”
The story of Foote’s departure has become part of Blue Jackets’ lore.
