Boqvist, 1st and more picks to Columbus. What a haul for them

What the hell for Chicago
Edit: actually it is an eight year extension

Absolutely dropping a bomb of dumb on every pending RFA superstar defenseman’s comps (haha Boston, Colorado)

What the hell is going on. This is better than the trade deadline.

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

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.

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.

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.
