David Jones

I've read a lot about David Jones today. Avs fans aren't happy with him. He's been playing 4th line minutes and has even been a healthy scratch for genius head coach Joe Sacco. There's talks that Boston may have some interest in him. What do contenders see in him and what would they offer.

27 years old
4m per year
20 goals last year
27 the year before


I know teams are always looking for "playoff type players." I can see Jones fitting this role which is why he may spark some interest.

**edit: noted that played with physical edge but I stand corrected by every poster on here lol.

Looks to be a possible buy out candidate given his big contract and poor production.
Maybe a late round pick at best. A team may take a chance on him rediscovering his game but the contract is a big negative.

I see no reason why a team with so much cap space would worry about buying him out. They would at least wait to see a full season out of him. There's no rush for them to buy him out over 4m per year.

Physical edge?

I'd deal him for a second round pick. If he catches fire at the right time you might pick up half a dozen playoff goals out of him, but otherwise he's useless.

i'd trade straight across for an injured David Booth and eat the extra cap hit.

No point in trading him when he might rebound next year and right now is worth about a 6th.
