I haven't paid much attention to Jones in the NHL, but I drafted him in my FHL in a year when his college team seemed to be on TV all the time. I drafted Davis and Martinez too, fwiw, and I guess none of them seems to be progressing as I expected at the time.
But I liked the way he played from the faceoff circles in, at least. He scored a lot of goals, and always seemed to drive to the net, get a lot things done in close, which it seems like we've been lacking for a long time.
Basically, to me, if we spent half a season on Pacioretty or D'Agostini, I don't see any harm in trying out Jones. But without top-6 icetime or a PP garbage role, I still wonder what he'd do in a lesser role. His grit didn't seem to come with him to the NHL. No idea why. The Preds are clearly giving up on his ability to contribute in that lesser role.
