Agree with your observations on Jones. He has terrible hands, mishandles the puck constantly, and spends more time running into his own teammates than running into the opposition.

He is an OK depth player for our bottom six, but I certainly don't want to see him get a lengthy contract here. Reid Wilkins was on Bob Stauffer's show saying he should be locked up at $2.5 million, and I think this reflects the thinking of a lot of fans.

The guy may have a mullet and a ballcap, but he isn't much of a player and has hit his ceiling here. He shouldn't be in the top six on our team and we need to stop overpaying for depth players.

I prefer Paajarvi and Hartikainen to both Smyth and Jones. To be frank, Rajala would be a better fit than Jones in our top 6.
