Another thing with Jones is that I think he'd become the most talked about player on our team and bring in lots of media attention.
It seems crazy to think that with players like Stamkos, St. Louis and Lecavlier that would be possible but we get no national coverage or respect.
Jones has several things going for him that no matter what team gets him he will increase their national perception fast. He's American, which shouldn't matter but it does for some, he's black, again it shouldn't matter but does, he'd bring in an audience that normally wouldn't pay attention, his dad was a long time NBA player, he wasn't the best but played for awhile on a lot of teams, ESPN loves basketball and hates hockey so I'm sure they'd give him several stories and show his highlights.
Which ever team gets him will be extremely lucky to have him, I'm not saying he will do what Crosby has done in Pittsburgh and made them the face of the NHL but I can see lots of NBC games and good publicly.
