Scratch defencemen John-Michael Liles and Adam Foote from the list of available free agents.
Sources told TSN Sunday that Liles and the Colorado Avalanche have agreed to terms on a four-year contract worth an average of slightly more than $4 million per year.
Liles was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent on Tuesday.  The deal was formally announced Monday.

As expected, the Avalanche also announced that they have re-signed Foote.
Sources told TSN Foote's deal is believed to be for two years and a total of $6 million, or $3 million per year.

Liles, a Zionsville, Indiana native scored six goals and 26 assists in 81 games last season.  In 313 career games, the 28-year old Liles has 44 goals and 115 assists.

Meanwhile the 36-year old Foote returned to the Avalanche at the trade deadline last season from the Columbus Blue Jackets.  A two-time Stanley Cup champion with the Avs, Foote scored one goal and picked up 15 assists last season. 

In 998 career games, the Toronto born blueliner has 65 goals and 219 assists.
