Who is giving Jones a pass for being hurt?

Didn't do that bad of a job???? At the end of the first round, Crosby and Malkin were atop the league in playoff scoring.

Only against the little sisters of the poor or teams that aren't world beaters. Match them up under pressure against a team with world class players like the Pens and it's Fail-o-Rama.

I understand that reasoning.

He played well last year and had a great playoffs. Maybe they paid him well because they saw him as a second pairing guy. He held his own quite nicely when Timonen and Coburn were out last Spring.

I think you need to note that Jones may have wound up as a overpaid third pairing guy because he was injured. I'm not sure why that's so hard to understand.

Earlier this year he fell down like five times in ten games and people here shouted: "SEE??? HE SUCKS SO BAD - HE FALLS DOWN!!!!" as if anyone can make it to the NHL with skating skills so poor that they trip over their own feet.

If you'd be happy with Jones "ONLY on the third pairing (with alot less money)", then you are an outlier here. For nearly everyone else it's a senseless jihad and it's stupid.
