He's struggling right now which makes him an easier "get" but the way he plays...he would be amazing on Crosby's wing. He's in the slot with a good shot and has the size and the wheels to keep up. Moving TK and opening up that 3rd line spot would allow the team to move Dupuis there, where he would be a natural fit and put Jones in the top 6. Whenever Geno returns, the top 6 has a better option of wingers even if Dupuis is back in the top 6, having another off wing shot on Geno's left would be pretty nice too, especially since he has a pretty heavy shot himself. 4m/yr isn't that bad if he can regain his 20 goal form, watching his goals, he definitely can do it.

Kunitz, Crosby, Jones
Bennett, Malkin, Neal
Cooke, Sutter, Dupuis
Glass, Vitale/Jeffrey, Adams
I would worry about Jones. I'd still rather take a risk on Malone staying healthy. Jones has a big body, but really isn't all that physical. I could surely see him becoming the new whipping boy if TK was moved.
