From Adrian Dater of the Denver Post:
I talked to Adam Foote’s agent today, Rick Curran. I didn’t write a story about it for the print edition, because I don’t think it was too newsworthy, and because I think it’s a foregone conclusion Foote will be back. Curran said he and the Avs have had some talks already, but didn’t expect a deal until at least by or after next weeked’s draft in Ottawa.

Dater is close to the situation, so when he says he thinks it’s a foregone conclusion that Foote re-signs, it most likely is.
A deal makes sense from both sides. Foote is still a very dependable defensive defenseman and the Avalanche could certainly use his leadership and defensive ability on their blue line.
