Highly subjective, but i'd guess:
Heck, maybe even the Jets. Load up both Trouba and Jones as the bottom pairing - that may be enticing enough to have Trouba leave Michigan after only one year.
I see it somewhat similar to what the NJ Devils did with Larsson last year. Granted Larsson is a European and Jones plays in CHL, but depending on who drafts him, they may want him in the lineup (American kid, high pick, teams looking for smaller cap hits, etc.).
Murray was penciled in to CBJ lineup before the lockout, and that's an area of 'strength' for the Blue Jackets. Jones would likely have a bigger impact on a team (above) than Murry would in CBJ.
