>Jones Feeling the Pressure?
>With the tough battle at the forward position in Predators camp, Brandon Felder over at HockeyBuzz has a post-game quote from Ryan Jones tonight on whether or not he’s feeling the “crunch” to clinch a roster spot:
“You try not to think about it too much because the more you think about it the more stress you get and the tighter you grip your stick out there. I do my best to block it out but obviously it’s always in the back of your mind.”
Some have already penciled Jonesy in on the Preds opening night lineup. I will say that I am one of those people. I’ve said all along that I expect Jones to make this team. Things will get interesting through the final days of camp though. Nashville has a few other young talents that could leapfrog Jones and claim a roster spot.
Keep your fingers crossed!
