Flyers Inquire About Foote

The Philadelphia Flyers have inquired about the availability of  veteran Colorado Avalanche defenseman Adam Foote. Foote is currently sidelined with a quadriceps injury and hasn’t been very healthy over the past few seasons. He just starting practicing today so he is getting closer to returning to live action. Foote would provide depth and leadership to defensive unit that is already missing Sean O’Donnell and Oskars Bartulis. He has no goals and eight assists in 41 games this season for Colorado. In his career, he has scored 66 goals and notched 242 assists.

I think this would be a solid move for the Flyers. No matter how long O’Donnell and Bartulis are out of the lineup, it never hurts to have an insurance policy. Foote is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer so the orange and black wouldn’t have to part with much more than a late round draft pick to get him. He would provide significant leadership and has playoff experience with the Avalanche. I think it’s a move that the team should make unless they’re content with Matt Walker as their seventh defenseman.

One response to “Flyers Inquire About Foote

  1. I don’t see this happenings. Foote is hurt, past his time, and is probably looking to retire with the Avalanche like Forsberg did this year.
