Ryan Jones, just like Mike Santorelli and others were given a chance and coaches seem to show confidence in them. Thus success after leaving the Preds. Did those 2 ever get any more than 4th line minutes?
Jones was a always a good scorer for the amount of time he received. 7 goals with the type of minutes he was getting wasn't bad .... 1.8 PPG/60mins was among the team leaders.
