<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>ChiHawk</b></div><div>LMAO, you think Jones is only a top 4 dman? He's easily a top 50 dman in the league and out of 32 teams, that's 64 dmen on the top line. Add to it that RHD are in shorter supply. He's a top 20 right hand guy in the league without question, top 50 d man overall. If you are referring to his advanced stats, yes they aren't top 50 but he's been paired up with some pretty crappy partners. If you watch him enough and have eyes for hockey, there is no denying he's a special player. Pair him up with an average 1st line LHD man in the league and he would be in the top 20 conversation.
Is he paid too much, of course by about $2M give or take $500K, but if he was on a $7.5M contract, there would be 20 teams wanting him. Nobody wants him at full cap hit and futhermore, there is zero evidence that chicago even tried trading him...I follow every analyst, podcast and media personality that covers Chicago and nowhere is there any insider report that Chicago tried trading him. Feel free to send a link showing i'm wrong.</div></div>
He’s always been brutal defensively even playing with werenski in Columbus overpaid by probably 3m it’s okay to admit that he’s not elite doesn’t mean I don’t like him he’s just not as good as you think.. but your a hawks fan it’s okay to be a little bias happens to everyone
