Seth Jones to Chicago

<< < (2/3) > >>

Guilt Trip:
Brutal trade for Chicago..

CarltonTheBear:
That Jones contract might be the worst thing a GM did today, and that's saying something.

Nik:
I guess I'm out of step on this one too because I don't hate it for Chicago. It's two (probably mid-round) firsts for a guy who we thought a couple years ago as one of the brighter young defensemen in the game.

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

Highlander:
I like Jones, but not at that price.

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.
