He'll get top line minutes down there, and Ryan Hamilton can't skate.

Jones wasn't good here since his injury, but he did score over 15 goals twice playing on the 3rd line. People are dreaming if they think any of Eakins' boys will come close to doing that.
Agreed. Sometimes preseason isn't the best time or place for a guy like Jones to find his game. Refocusing in OKC should allow him to fill in the gaps in his game. Hamilton has beaten him for his spot, but it's only temporary.
