One reason veteran defenseman Adam Foote wanted out of Columbus was that he wanted to win, and in the NHL that means at the very least making the playoffs.

A little more than a year after he was traded back to the Avalanche from the Blue Jackets, Columbus is in the thick of a fight for its first postseason berth and Colorado is in last place in the Western Conference, destined to be done playing when the regular season ends April 12.

Oops.

I think some of the reason we are better this year is because of Umberger. He's really given the second line something to be dangerous about. So, not only did Foote go from a bad team that got good, to a decent team that sucks, but he, essentially brought in one of the bigger pieces to the puzzle.
