He is capable of playing in the top 4 on most NHL teams. He was 4th in TOI/G for the Flyers during the regular season, 5th in the playoffs. He had a better +/- than everyone but Timonen. And that was playing at less than 100%

I'm not sure why the hate. Petty jealousy of handsome, successful guy who worked his way from a college scholarship through the pro ranks to millionaire status seems like the most likely explanation.

Looks like he's getting ready for the year, the lazy bum:

Handsome? Jesus.

I'm absolutely jealous of Randy Jones being paid millions more than he's worth, we'd all love that. But if that were the reason for the hate, every fan would hate every player and nobody would watch the NHL. We all want their success. It's not just Randy Jones who's worth being jealous of for ****'s sake.

So in other words: guess again.

It has nothing to do with jealousy. I would hate to be Jones because then everyone would hate me, and I'd know I am just a teacher's pet. I thought 2.75 divded over 2 years was overpayment for Jones which is like 1.35 a year, when that was initially reported. Let alone 2.75 per year. Jones is a 3rd pairing defenseman and always will be. And Kukkonen actually made him look better. KUKKONEN
