Yeah, unless I remember wrong here, Jones was certainly not amazing during that playoff run. He wasn't bad, but it was fairly obvious that he was nothing more than a bottom pairing defender who could play on the second PP. I mean, to get a lot of minutes when the rest of the defense is No-Legs-Hatcher, Two-Dislocated-Shoulders-Smith, No-Brains-Kukkonen, a Jaroslav Modry who had nothing left in his tank except an ability to pass the puck fairly well, and Ryan Parent called up from the AHL, that's not such a big feat.
