Why Edmonton does this: Jones isn't a part of their future. They don't have many puck moving defenseman (just Petry and Schultz), and their defense is weak. The 3rd rounder just adds to their prospect pool.
Potter is as much of a puck mover as Weber. We don't need another bottom 6 d-man, we need top 4 guys.
Jones is also one of a few that goes in tough areas and gives 110% every shift. He can be had, but not for guys that add very little.
