>Predators Re-Sign Jones

>The Nashville Predators announced today that they have re-signed former RedHawks captain Ryan Jones. The deal is a two-year, one-way contract that will pay Jones roughly $975,000 per season.

In 46 games with Nashville last season, Jones registered seven goals and ten assists. His first NHL goal came on October 15, 2008 against Dallas and CCHA alum Marty Turco.
The key to this deal is that it’s a one-way contract. Jones had rejected his qualifying offer from the Predators earlier in the summer, reportedly because the team was offering a two-way contract. Having a one-way deal greatly limits the team’s options with a player, as they (the player) will be exposed to waivers upon being sent down to, or recalled from the AHL. This almost assures that Jones will remain with the Predators for the next two seasons, but where he’ll play is still in question.
Conventional wisdom says Jonesy would be a great fit on the Preds second line, however, with Nashville’s rumored interest in several free agent wingers, exactly where he’ll fit in remains in question.

  1. >Question: Which rookie at training camp in Sept. will be getting an errant slapshot on his backside from Mr. Jones?Answer: Colin Wilson. Yeah the same Colin Wilson from "that school" up east that ruined my entire April this year will be in the Preds training camp with Jones come Sept. That should be an interesting/entertaining first "hello, nice to meet you" between teammates!!
