I mean, how many teams think, "boy if we only had Adam Foote, we'd really go far." Maybe it's because I didn't see him much in his prime, or maybe because he never played a full season (ever!)...but he seems like the kind of guy who's nice to have but not really a cornerstone player.
Now if he were a big time hitter who also had offense, like Scott Stevens, that's different. That's a guy who plays both ends of the ice. And Dumba's a lot closer to that type of player.
Foote in his prime was something but the era he played in probably helped some.
