But am I the only one who doesn't see much grit in Jones' game? He has earned himself decent hit stats over the past 2 seasons, but I can't ever really recall him throwing big hits that actually impact anything. He's not much of a fighter and really doesn't mix it up with other teams players in between whistles.
I put him with Stoll. Guys that don't go and throw big hits, but they'll go full speed into the corners and crash to get the pucks.
And honestly that is better than nothing right now. Until the kids are willing to go in deep on a consistent basis having a Jones do it won't hurt.
