People who hate Jones just simply don't know what they are talking about. He's developed into a good, reliable all-around d-man. He skates well when healthy, he's got decent size, he moves the puck and joins the rush.
He is capable of playing in the top 4 on most NHL teams. He was 4th in TOI/G for the Flyers during the regular season, 5th in the playoffs. He had a better +/- than everyone but Timonen. And that was playing at less than 100%
I'm not sure why the hate. Petty jealousy of handsome, successful guy who worked his way from a college scholarship through the pro ranks to millionaire status seems like the most likely explanation.
Looks like he's getting ready for the year, the lazy bum:
