I posted a modified version of this in the main training camp thread and thought I would add it here as well.

I would like to ask people that now that the Jones on waivers rumours proved accurate to please keep things civil. Jones is a well liked player in the locker room and was a good warrior for the Oilers for years. Sure he got passed on the depth chart here recently, but that doesn't mean people should be celebrating for any other reason than it means Eakins is likely picking the best roster based on play, rather than who was here in previous years. I would be pleased that Eakins is making the right choices, but I would also hope Jones passes through waivers and makes it back up here at some point. He'd be a better injury replacement option for the bottom 6 than most the Oilers have.

Plenty of player that didn't expect it will be going on waivers this year because of the cap falling. Jones isn't be the first and he won't be the last.

And also, full thanks to OilNAmerica for the heads up. The source that poster told me about is a more direct one than any other I have been told of before. Also, due to the nature of that source, the poster may not be able to give inside info often, so please try not to harass him/her too much.
