Jones

It appears from reading jays comments that Jones may be headed to the Chiefs or to SP? Is he ready for that level of competition? In reading the synopsis Pete and Chad have posted on him it looks like he is ready to move up but where? Would he be better off in SP?

Springfield

I think he's ready for Springfield. The problem is that he's a center and the Falcons already have at least two centers slated for them (Perrin and Cavanaugh). If they re-sign Jaspers, and supposedly Claude Loiselle is working on signing a veteran forward as we speak, that really squeezes Jones out. AHL teams only dress 11 forwards most nights which means he wouldn't even be on a 4th line but rather seeing spot duty. Great problem to have though.
