Smith especially would make a lot of sense given his chemistry with Stastny and his inability to fit in under Trotz. And Jones obviously makes too much sense for Colorado.
Tampa supposedly has their eye on Nichushkin. And Florida would have to rate Drouin or Barkov over Jones. Lots of if's but this would be a dream scenario for me.
Would be a dream scenario, but I have a feeling Colorado is too in love with Jones, they need a D-man and he's a hometown kid, to even risk moving all the way down to 4.
There's no guarantee Florida or perennially defense-starved Tampa wouldn't take Jones.
