Yeah, I think Jones would be a whipping boy here.

I wouldn't take that contract unless Colorado ate some of the cap hit which I doubt they would do since they just signed him to that deal. Hard to imagine they'd change their mind about him being worth that contract so quickly.

I wanted him too and he's looked great in Carolina. He better be looking great out there since he's getting 7 million this year. I'm not sure he would have signed here even if we offered the same salary. I think it would have been a little awkward fit here given some of the history with our players and I highly doubt Ray Shero viewed him as a 7 million dollar player even on a one year deal.
