Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Adam Foote and GM Scott Howson met to discuss his future with the club. Howson wants to sign Foote to a multi-year contract extension, but if the Jackets fall out of playoff contention, he might be traded. The defenseman has a no-trade clause in his contract and any acceptable offer the Jackets received would have to be approved by Foote. “I have no intention of trading Adam Foote if we’re in a playoff race,” Howson said. “But I must do what is best for the franchise.” Source
