The Blue Jackets went 35-43-4 last season, good for 74 points, the best record in the young franchise's history, and they are expecting to compete for a playoff berth this season with veterans such as Foote, Fedorov, Modin and Anson Carter, along with young talents Rick Nash, David Vyborny, Duvie Westcott and Pascal Leclaire.
Columbus defenseman Adam Foote, right, missed the playoffs for the first time since 1993-94 last season, his first with the Blue Jackets. "We're right there; it's just a matter of when the trigger's going to go off," Foote said.
Adam Foote hadn't played for a team with a losing record since his third season in the NHL.
It previously happened in 1993-94, with the Quebec Nordiques. No way they make it they have only won 1 game in the last 7 as their coach says we play soft.The fourth line is the only line that consistently don't turn out of their checks.
