The Colorado Avalanche have signed defenseman and team captain Adam Foote to a one-year contract for the 2010-11 season.
The undisclosed contract allows the veteran to return for a 19th NHL
campaign and 17th with the Colorado/Quebec franchise. Foote is the
franchise leader among defenseman in games played (920) and playoff
games (170) and was a member of Colorado's 1996 and 2001 Stanley Cup
championship teams.

The 38-year-old is the second-highest scoring defenseman in team
history with 251 points. His 195 career assists are a club record among
blueliners.

"Adam's veteran leadership has been and will continue to be a big
part of our success," said Avalanche general manager and executive vice
president Greg Sherman. "He provided stability last season and set an
example for our young players right from the start of training camp. We
are pleased to have our captain back for another year."

Selected in the second round of the 1989 NHL Draft by the Quebec
Nordiques, Foote is also a three-time Olympian with Team Canada (1998,
2002, 2006) and won gold at the 2002 Winter Games in Salt Lake City.

In 1,107 career games, including a nearly three-year stint with
Columbus, Foote has accumulated 66 goals and 234 assists with a
plus-108 rating. He was plus-eight with nine helpers and zero goals in
67 games this past season.

Holy cow. 1 million base salary, but the contract could double with incentives. Great deal for the Avs.

Haha, people don't seem to get it that old players do not command a lot of money. Sutton is no different. No way he gets what he is getting now and Jason Smith got way too much too.

Foote is playing there because he loves it and they want him there.

I agree, Foote is playing there for 1 million + because he loves it there, but he could easily get 2 million base on the open market. Easily, he was still one of their best D-men.

Plus, he's 38, so he's okay doing it year by year, so was Rob Blake (who still got 4 million), but Sutton's 35, some would argue he's matured only now into a bonafide top 4 shutdown D-man. He's getting bare minimum of 2.25, probably more like 2.75 or even 3. He's getting paid.
