It's not a potshot. It's a legitimate risk for Buffalo. Eichel is signed long term, and Jones isn't.
Jones is not the 4/6th anymore he’s not been good he had flashes this year but last two years have been pretty bad for him werenski surpassed him on his team alone
Proposal has been previously mentioned as not appealing with Jones expiring contract. Players are close.
In that case Buffalo adds
I've always liked Jones but I feel he's modestly overrated, especially in a deal like this. He doesn't return Eichel unless massive adds are coming from CBJ.
I know. My comment was mostly tongue-in-cheek. It’s just funny cause with Columbus it doesn’t seem to matter if a guy is signed or not.
The value is close......if Jones has a long-term deal.
But Jones doesn't have a long term deal and thus Buffalo isn't interested.
that would be devastation for Buffalo regardless of value.
how long has columbus looked for a pure #1 C ...and Eichel is a franchise caliber #1C ...they already have their #1 D in Dahlin
this is terrible lmao
Dahlin is a bust IMHO, no other NHL player frustrates Kimmo Timonen as much as Dahlin.
Skating and hands are ther but his play is sooooo soft and blasé. Timonen keeps asking if "Dahlin actually has a heart that beats in his chest or does he actually want to play hockey at all"
If Jones would agree to extension before making the trade and adding Merzlekins maybe would make it work IMHO.
What nonsense? Dahlin looks great, almost all of his stats have improved both offensively and defensively after head coach was fired, and yes, he's gotten more physical. Your information is outdated.
From Columbus side, certainly yes
Why would Buffalo add?
Because an extended Jones is more valuable than Ike.
Buffalo says No
A year ago you’d be right but with Buffalo turning into an absolute tire fire his value has been tanked, how many goals does Ike have this year?
Do you ever look at contracts before making proposals? Clearly you didn’t here.
If you're Columbus trading for Eichel, isn't the point to become a legit contender?
I would think they'd need Eichel AND Jones in order to accomplish that...
I just don't think Columbus has the prospects/picks to get something done around Eichel
Buffalo has always been bad in recent years, but Eichel has been great. What difference does it make how he played this season, if from the first game he played with an injury that simply prevented him from shooting and moving. He walked at 95 points last season and has five more years on the deal after this season.
Jones is my favorite defender in the league after Hedman but his contract doesn’t work out.
Right and once he comes back and proves that this season was an anomaly his value should go back up, until then his value is gonna be low
tough to debate............ on how many years this sets Buffalo back.
Its value will not be low, he is still an elite 1C with a long-term contract, such guys are very rarely traded and Buffalo certainly does not make sense to trade him if someone thinks that its value will be low.
