No, not the core two years ago...but going to be the core in the near future (ie: now). Right now we have three VERY good centers. Do we 'need' them? I don't think we do, were playing just fine with Briere on the sidelines. I just don't think it's money well spent.
For all the crap Jones gets around here, he's not making mad amounts of money, nor is he considered elite like Danny Boy.

Yes, he has glimpses of high talent.
