Crazy talk. You want one of the most dangerous offensive players in the league at 23 years old for last years 4th overall pick? No way. RNH is fair value but then we just open up a bigger hole in the lineup. Eberle or Yak are the ones i'd be willing to part with in a Jones deal. To be completely honest I personally wouldn't really be comfortable giving up any major assets for Jones. Not saying he's not worth them, but we have a lot of young defenceman, we need some veteran D more then anything.

Fair enough, but it should be noted that Jones was the consensus BPA until a month or so before the draft. I wouldn't do Jones for Yak at all. Eberle would get me thinking. I'm still of the opinion we need to hold off on trading anyone for offense until we see how some new blood behind the bench handles that part of the game.

Seems to me nashville is looking for a veteran impact center.
With a 5 or 6 year deal Spezza is a perfect fit.

Unless im mistaken the idea is to maximize their current roster, at the center position.

Wat.
Hall/RNH are needed more than jones.


None of our other forwards players are in the same value range of Jones....What did you expect?

I expected at least Eberle. Yakupov for Jones is terrible.

oh lol. I think theres more value in Yak than in Eberle so I didn't think of throwing Ebs in there. I just feel Ebs has peaked and doesn't drive an offense like the other 3 can when they are hot. Which centers would you be willing to throw in if the offer was

Eberle + 3rd Overall for Jones + (bigger bodied center to get rid of Gagner)


this is assuming Ekblad was already drafted in the first 2 picks so you have a choice of either Reinhart or Bennet with the 3rd pick.

I'd prefer you take Eric Staal too...include a center of some kind who could remotely replace him and we can find common ground I am sure.

Staal
?

Jones
Smith

It's not that all Russian players will, the chances are just exponentially higher when drafting one. It's just risk management.

One thing that's impressive in this thread is that it's not chock-full of posters offering complete garbage...there are some legit offers here.

I didn't think there was ever any give-and-take on this board.

I'd probably do Couture for Jones as well.

Why would the Preds even consider moving Jones? If they want a young top forward, wouldn't Josi be the one to trade?

It's because Jones is a shiny new toy and was hot at the start of the season.

Valuewise, I think Yak is worth more than Eberle, lol. Way more upside, harder worker. Yak is more the kind of guy who you can build a team around. Plus from our perspective, Eberle's chemistry with Hall and Nuge is pretty good, so we'd prefer to move Yak I think. If his name was Neil Smith instead of Nail Yakupov, I'm sure most Nashville fans would rather have Yak as well.

This. Josi makes more sense. Jones will be hitting his top pairing prime when weber starts to decline. Think you should build around jones. (You kinda hit the lottery when he fell to you). Josi would bring you a good return.

Heck , you want a high end RHD or power forward right? What about burns (signed for 3 more years) for Josi? Is burns enough of a return ?

I certainly don't want to trade Jones. I don't think you'll find many Nashville fans that do.

Well according to the polls section with Kessel for Jones + 11th the summary seems to be "Kessel is overrated trash" and Jones is a "futre multiple Norris winner" so I think the only thing Nashville fans would consider an upgrade at this point would be Malkin / Stamkos / Crosby lol.

So much overrating of Jones so far.

Well Josi is better than Jones so I think it makes sense to keep the better player. Plus, as it stands right now, our right side is stronger than the left. Sure, Jones may one day surpass Josi, but is it worth taking that risk?

His name has nothing to do with it as far as I am concerned, though the Russian factor is certainly over blown by a lot of Preds fans still mad about Radulov. For me the biggest concern with Yakupov is will he actually pan out? I think Jones has a very good shot at reaching his potential. I'm not quite as sold on Yak.

The last time I was in that thread there were over thirty votes for the "Nashville fans" options, and only five or six were actually Nashville fans. Don't put that on us. No one has ever said it would take one of those three. In fact, several of the offers in here have been good ones.

I didn't see much of drouin this year, but keep in mind he did that while losing his line mate and arguably the best player in the whole CHL in Mackinnon. Maintaining his point totals in that scenario probably does indicate improvement and shows he wasn't just a beneficiary of playing with the #1 draft pick and likely calder winner. Also, if I'm not mistaken, Drouin was playing centre this year (someone correct me if this is wrong), so showing he can excel in a more valuable position should increase his value a bit too right?

I just thought that Jones was considered a franchise dman. You have one in Weber and it would seem with their age difference, the Preds could have 2 franchise dmen for a long time.
