Jones has 3 years @ 4 million per. Toronto could buy him out right away or potentially look to redeal him and retain some salary.

It'd be a similar deal to the Lebda for Lombardi deal with Nashville having to throw in Franson.
We can just buy-out Jones ourselves and we have enough bottom pairing defenders. Don't want Komisarek at all. If we wanted him for free we would have picked him up off of waivers.
