It's hard to see what wrong with Jones. He fumbles the puck more than he used to and doesn't seem to get his shot off around goal. It just seems like his timing is off.

When it comes to skating, defense and physicality he looks the same as he did last year. Looks good at times and invisible most of the time.

I'm not against trading Quincey, but there isn't much in terms of free agent defensemen this off-season.

I hope he gets traded. Useless player. Fumbles the puck more than Svatos did. Poor lateral mobility. No passing ability at all. You got to turn the page on the calender everytime he shoots it takes so long. Below average defensively, always has trouble chipping the puck out at our blueline.

I'd trade him, but what would we get for him? and who would want him?

Do they really need a FA to replace Quincey? Short of Suter, there isn't much out there that would be an upgrade over what they already have.

EJ, Hejda, Wilson, O'Brien, O'Byrne, Elliott as a top 6. Barrie/Gaunce if they want to let O'Brien or O'Byrne sign elsewhere, or just as an insurance policy in case of injury. And maybe give Siemens a try during the preseason and see what he brings.

Honestly, as long as Hunwick doesn't get resigned, I'm happy with the blueline.

If Josh Kroenke green lights Sherman to run free with the check book, the Avalanche could give both Matt Carle and Dennis Wideman fat contracts.

I want to say he can provide offense on the 3rd line, but if we can get someone in return im not even worried about losing a "good 3rd liner".

Aside from EJ and Hejda I don't really like the idea any of those guys regularly playing over 20min a night. Image if we got hit a rash of injuries on D, the lineup would look bad, real fast.

Jones was clutch last night.

Seriously, where is he? He does know hockey requires more effort than skating, right?

You mean kind of like what happened last year?

Yes, with that lineup, a few key injuries would probably cause some major issues, but I don't know any team in the league that wouldn't suffer if they lost one or both of their top pairing guys. SJ, LA, Boston, etc. could all limp along decently for a little while, but there would be a big drop off if their top guys went down.

Would signing someone like Johnny Boychuk instead of O'Brien make you happy, assuming they can't sign Suter?

I think Jones is better than most on here, I'm just not sure where he "fits" on the roster going forward.

ps, wideman sucks

I want last season's Jones back, not this season's Jones back.
