I get your frustration Joe. I have assumed you knew him from college. But the guy just never made a good enough claim to a spot here and with both Hornqvist and Wilson blowing by him on the depth chart we really werent going to be doing him any favors by leaving him here as a permascratch or on the 4th line.
Thats what I think those who say we "misused" Jones by putting him on the 4th line are not considering... with the rise of both Wilson and Hornqvist, there is no slot anywhere but the 4th line for Jones...
looking at next year, there still wasnt going to be a spot anywhere above the 4th line for him.
and in 2 years when we have spots he would have been a UFA...
