We all know what Jones brings... not everyone likes Eager but I liked what I saw from Eager in his very short ice time in his only game. They both provide energy and some speed when they play up to their abilities and that's something the team needs more of outside the top 2 lines.
The problem with Eager is he played all of last year tentatively, like he knew he would get hurt (IE: concussed) again. Then, after an extra-long break from the game and plenty of time to heal his head up, he goes out and plays like we had always expected him to... but gets concussed again. In his first game back.

If we see Eager again this year, I would bet that it will be the same tentative Eager from last year. And if he isn't tentative, then I would bet that he lasts no more than ten games before he's concussed again.
