I don't think we'll see a big TOI difference between the 2nd and 3rd pairings. I see Jones playing about 17 minutes a game, which is around where Volchenkov was at the end of the season. With our bottom two pairings, there's not much reason to overwork one. It's essentially pairing 2a and 2b in my opinion.

Plus, if I recall correctly, Jones didn't do so well next to Ekholm. I could be wrong, but I remember Ellis working with Ekholm much better. Volchenkov could pair up with either Jones or Ellis, but I think he compliments Jones a little better.
