It's a big contract but I certainly don't think the issue is he's washed at 26.

Boqvist is a recent 8th overall pick who played pretty well in the NHL already. He’s not two 1st round picks + less valuable than Jones, especially if the contract numbers being thrown around are accurate. They added a big win-now piece, but it’s hard to call them a win-now team.

Don't get me wrong, it may very well be an overpayment, I don't know Boqvist a ton and can't speak much there.

I just don't hate it. I think Jones is a good player.

Scratch that.
