I don't think a trade is an option, his salary is simply too high compared to his skills. Put him on waivers, same thing, no team will pick him up because of this. I believe he got a one-way contract, they will not send him down with that kind of salary.
The point is, if no club is interested in his contract he will remain a Flyer this season, and then become a UFA next year. Of course buying him out is an option, but that will not save any $.
And if Jones stays, Syvret goes. There will simply not be any room for him unless they plan on 8 defensemen on the roster. But Holmgren said they only want 7.
I think if the Flyers want to improve, they gotta bite the bullet and send Jones down.
