Avs slipped back into the "win now" mode, or at the very least full on in the put the band back together mode with Forsberg and Foote coming back for one last glory day push....and it worked for a short run against the Wild.

As much as the Avs overpaid in pure on ice value, I think the 1st was worth having Foote on the roster to serve as leader over those last years.
