That may or may not be an overpayment long term depending on Jones' actual development. He could either settle in at a high level becoming a consistent first paring defenseman but never reaching the ultimate elite level (like Kimmo Timonen), or turn into a franchise defenseman who carries the whole team on his shoulders.
Only in the latter case this price would be justified imho. Too much of a risk! in any case we would not know who won this deal until 4-5 years from now.
