He came back last season and his conditioning/skating was an issue, it was horrible in fact, but can you blame the kid for wanting to get back so quickly? The concussion's were not his fault.

He is faster, more skilled, smarter, and just a better player than David Jones. Period
He isn't faster.

He's clearly playing well below his career pace right now.

On the other hand if you want to only look at the recent 1/4 of a season's worth of games and extrapolate it to 82 games, you get what Dahrougem2 does, which is a Mcleod (near his peak) level guy. But if you go with Mcleod that's defnitely the best you'll get. Jones still could bounce back and give a lot you more than what he currently is. Parital season, new father, team not clicking. Not impossible to think he could rebound later or perhaps next year.

How did this become a Jones thread?

Back on Topic: Keep O'R and Lands together for a while more, see if they continue to show signs of the old magic. I partly think Landy was still just getting back in sync. Both Landy and Staz were looking really good individually and doing nearly all of the little things well, but just hadn't found the timing yet to start put it in the net more. Which is interesting because I remember last year the few times they would overlap on the ice, they almost always clicked immediately.

I think Gabe still isn't quite back to normal yet. Bizarre how on the PP they've been playing Staz in front of the net and Landy behind the net. I think they didn't want Landy to take all of the direct pounding quite yet.

The way some of the poster here act regarding Mueller one could think we let prime Hejduk leave this team.
List me the numerous ailments that make Peter Mueller injury prone and I will counter you with the numerous ailments that make David Jones EVEN MORE injury prone

Yes, he has managed to score 12 points in 28 games on a team that has played a lot of, if not most of the season without:

Stephen Weiss
Kris Versteeg
Scottie Upshall
Ed Jovanovski
Dmitry Kulikov

Yes, that Florida Panthers team, I mean he should be putting up numbers beyond imagination right?

The fact that you don't see how Peter Mueller is a better player than David Jones is baffling really, seems like you're stuck on the Peter Mueller from last season who came back from his concussion too early without getting the proper conditioning and skating in, rather than the Peter Mueller who looked like a 1st line winger when he was drafted and when he was acquired by the Avalanche. Yes, that's a long time ago but that's because of his concussion issues, which have been put behind him, not because of his decline in play

David Jones has always been this type of player, the only difference is that in his two seasons of 27 goals and 20 goals, he was deemed useful because the puck was going in for him. Now, he's a liability on the ice

Peter Mueller wouldn't help this team in any way shape or form. I don't understand what's so hard to understand about it. So you think he's better than Jones, big freaking deal, since Jones has been terrible beyond words this season, it's like saying drowning is better than being set on fire.

Neither of them are what this team needs, and Mueller is not a 1st line player. If we had resigned him and he'd scored a total of 2 goals in his last 20 games, people would be wanting to throw him and Sherman onto a pile of pitchforks. And maybe you should save the claim that his concussion problems have been put behind him for when he's actually played at least one full season without one.

As it has been said, this is not a David Jones thread. Get it back on topic or the Thread will be closed.

Landy and ROR need to light it up, because I don't see anyone else that suits Stats play better than Landy except for maybe McGinn.

Given the fact that he's played every game this season and has been symptom free, I'd say his concussion issues are behind him. Clinically proven that once symptoms go away, that's it, they're gone, it can't magically return

I didn't say Mueller would help this team more because this team is in disarray, what I am trying to state is that he is a much better player than David Jones, how you fail to see that is your issue

Olver and O'Reilly seemed to work really well together--I wouldn't mind them staying together and just use Kobasew as 4th line center.

I said in the GDT that Olver when he's at his best is like a Downie-light. Put him on that line and see if anything happens with Landeskog/$ $'$.

And break up our 4th line of Awesomeness????

Actually thought of that by benching Hejduk and keeping McLeod in, but I want one more game with that 4th line.
The fact that McLeod and Bords did not take care of all those cheap shots last night made me mad since that is their job, so Cody is getting benched.
