Turn Back the Clock Week continues in Denver, as the Avalanche have re-acquired Adam Foote. That's two guys we lost after the lockout ended coming back to the Avs. Can Chris Gratton be far behind?

TSN is reporting that the Avs give up a conditional first round pick in either 2008 or 2009 as well as a 4th rounder. And yes, that's way too much to give up.

>From the Avs press release:

In exchange for his services, the Avalanche gives up the rights to a conditional first-round draft choice in 2008 or 2009 and a conditional fourth-round choice in 2009.

I believe the 4th round pick would be on a condition of Foote re-signing with us this summer.

With Skrastins gone and Jeff Finger I believe still in Denver with an injury, the Avs are down to 5 healthy defensemen tonight. Both Columbus and Florida have a home game next, so Foote should be in Columbus and Salei is in Miami right now. Can either make it to Calgary for the game tonight? Lake Erie is home next as well, so all those guys should be in Cleveland in case of a call-up today.
