CBJ fans did, too...but that shiny new RJ Umberger we got that summer with the Avs' 1st cured a lot of ills.
I don't know how aware of it CBJ fans are, but the first was actually conditional on Foote re-signing with us. You got our first in 2008 if Foote resigned, if he didn't, and went to free agency, you would get our first in 2009. You remember who we drafted with our first in 2009, right?

At least for Avs fans, that is the biggest "bullet dodged" feeling ever. Foote wasn't worth re-signing, especially not for 3 million. We should've let him walk. Thank god for our organization's sense of sentimentality.
