Jones to have hip surgery

Quote:
Defenseman Randy Jones saw a hip specialist yesterday in Nashville and will have surgery next week, the Flyers said. There was no timetable for his recovery.
The article also talks about Powe being examined, but they are waiting before doing surgery, and Emery which we already have a huge thread about (http://www.hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=639033).

Maybe this will help turn down the suck.

Trade him before he really turns into damaged goods.

The problem is he is already damaged goods. Unfortunately likely the only way to trade him now would be for him to heal, and then play to show he is healthy and can play at an NHL level.

So I don't think he will be traded during the offseason.

Not like a sucky 3rd pairing guy who makes $3 mill next season ($2.75 cap hit) has any trade value anyway.

WAIVE HIM. Bring in Sbisa.

WIN WIN WIN

Some people here dont understand that Homer and Stevens love the guy. They really do. I think he's a good guy and a good player. Sadly, because of this, he is not going anywhere...

It was 2 years $5Mil. Thus the obnoxious cap hit everyone hates. So he is going into his contract year.

He should probably just hang the skates up after this one.

You cant waive a guy who is recovering from injury. That's a great way to lose the goodwill of all players that you want to sign here in the future.

What a total failure this signing was. It's funny how some people say, "well, you guys aren't the GM, you don't know hockey" yet all of us were against this signing which forced us to waive 2 valuable players and trade a fan favorite and a high draft pick for an inferior player.

It all goes back to the Jones signing, yet none of us on the boards are apparently qualified to say anything even though most of us were against it.

Fail.

I think we can bank on Jones putting up around 30 points this season because he will get a bunch of 2nd line PP time. We will also see a +15 rating from playing on the 3rd pairing. As a result of a 30 point season with a +15 rating we'll most likely see him get a raise after this season with the Flyers which will cause us to all gag on our puke.

If we replace his lower body with a tank, he won't fall down anymore. I don't have time to do a really good photoshop, but I think this will give you an idea of what I'm talking about.



Tanky Jones. Totally worth his salary.

I thought it was supposed to be brain surgery?

edit: Trade him before he's damaged goods? Hes already there. The guy had surgery at the beginning of the year and never recovered and has been complaining about it all year... And that somehow covers his short comings.

I was against having Jones on this team even before he signed that deal, Imagine how I felt about the guy after... (after the comments he said about not caring where he plays, made it even worst.)

Thank god we are stuck with him or thank god his contract expires next season


Lol, I'm pretty sure I know the answer to that one.


Well, lets try to find some possitives in this one guys. I'll go first and I have 2 things I can think of. First, maybe he'll be out for at least half the season again next year too Second, with it likely that we are stuck with him for all of next year we will at least have the money to give Coburn and Parent their raises after next year. Like I've said before, Jones is out so that + 2.75 mil in cap space; Coburn goes from 1.3 mil to 2.75 mil, -1.45 mil and a net + 1.3 mil in cap space; Parent goes from 850k to 1.3 mil, -450k and a net + 850k in cap space; Marshall takes Jones spot on the bottom pairing, -850k for a net zero dollar change in cap hit.
