I'm thinking we won't take Jones, and this is an indication of it. Would they have turned down Grebs for Jones + a 2nd rounder when they were planning to waive Jones, anyway? Doubtful. That sends up a flag for me that the Oilers have no interest in Jones. I don't know why, though. Taking chances on cheap, young-ish players is what we need to be doing during a rebuild.
Wouldn't they get him at a discounted price if they pick him up on waivers? I wouldn't mind him as a possible replacement for Pisani or Moreau.
