Jones is getting 3rd 4th line minutes and playing up and above his expectations in EDM as of late.
I take it to be that if you are on a crappy team you are getting more opportunity than you would on a good team, typically from being on a higher line.

if thats no the case in Edmonton, then its either the difference in systems, or just our bad luck that we let jones go and he improved his game.

But its not like he didnt get chances here, just like Pevs and Santo. Sometimes it just is what it is.

The history of this team for many years was taking other teams cast-offs and making them productive here... Walker, Ronning, Timonen, Dunham and even Vokoun were all drafted by someone else and let go and flourished here... I think its a positive sign that we are now good enough that our castoffs are playing well elsewhere.
