From the looks of the Flyers board it almost appears that half of them may be on the verge of selling their loyalty on ebay...

I don't expect Jones to be the next KQ as some of you have suggested or perhaps just hoping. However, I do think that the change of scenery will do him good.

I sort of see Jones in a similar situation as Preissing. We wanted Preissing out of L.A. do to the fact that he was overpaid, injured and didn't live up to expectations. Pretty much how the flyers' fans feel about Jones. Personally, I like Preissing and I hope he and Jones both have great careers ahead of them with their new teams.

That said...schadenfreude
The are mad about money management. Jones is hated over there, they don't care about his fate, but they do care that two days ago, his money did not count towards the cap, and now half of his severely over payed contract is on the books for no reason whatsoever for a team that was already up against the cap wall. Gagne is going to come back, and when he does, the team will not have room to do very much.

If somehow you guys get the Jones of the 07-08 playoffs, it's good for you. Every other Jones sucks
