The Rangers have just six healthy defensemen and reportedly are looking for defensive help. Holmgren said he has not heard from GM Glen Sather.
Here’s a possibility: Jones clears waivers. The Flyers then assign Jones to the Phantoms, then place him on re-entry waivers where the Rangers take him. In this case, the Rangers and Flyers would split his salary, each taking a $1.5 million cap hit this season.
I really see no pt for Jones, even at half that amount he is the 7th Dman no?........what's the pt
He's hated by the Flyer fans and it more to do with his salary than anything else. He's decent but he's been injured and if he's injured (hip) he's not very good. He'd be a fine 3rd pairing dman but he's just expensive.
