Kukla's Korner Hockey

Adam Foote finding a new home in Columbus was one of the first major moves of the NHL free-agent frenzy this past summer. His decision was also one that caught out most observers. It seemed so unlikely that one of the league's premier defenceman would choose to ply his trade with a team so far out of the Stanley Cup picture. Granted, there were salary-cap issues that played a significant role in Foote leaving the Colorado Avalanche, where he'd spent his entire 13-year career. But other top-flight teams with fewer monetary concerns than the Avs would have wanted the sturdy rearguard. "I had a lot of good years in Colorado but it just didn't work out for me at the end and I just moved on," said Foote prior to the Blue Jackets' game against the Oilers last night.
