Per the group’s true delivery, the Blackhawks have procured defenseman Seth Jones from the Columbus Blue Jackets, just as the 32nd in general pick this year and a 6th rounder in the following year’s draft. In return, defenseman Adam Boqvist is made a beeline for Columbus, alongside the Hawks’ eleventh and 44th generally picks this year, and a first-rounder in 2022.
Notwithstanding, senior supervisor Stan Bowman wasn’t finished making a sprinkle. After the exchange was finished, TSN’s Pierre LeBrun announced that the ‘Birds of prey marked Jones to an eight-year contract expansion esteemed at $9.5 million every year.
Per CapFriendly, Jones was entering the last year of a six-year, $32 million agreement with Columbus. For the ‘Falcons to sign him to such an enormous expansion should imply that they earnestly accept that Jones is the fate of this current group’s cautious center.
This arrangement essentially implies that the Blackhawks can not re-sign both Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane when their agreements terminate in two years. Also, the ‘Birds of prey have dropped right during this current time’s draft load up to dead toward the end in the first round.
By and large, this was a huge bundle to offer up to obtain the 26-year old Jones. On one hand, he has been declining in execution to some degree from his freshman years, despite the fact that he is in the prime of his vocation at the present time and could without much of a stretch make something happen.
That being said, it appears like Stan Bowman accepts that the Blackhawks are basically Seth Jones and a couple of different pieces from being Stanley Cup competitors, and this simply doesn’t have all the earmarks of being the situation.
This shows up, by all accounts, to be an exchange that will return to enormously nibble the Blackhawks, and Columbus appears to have made out like scoundrels. Everything being equal now, however, Jones is a Blackhawk for the long stretch, and he will likewise be brought together with his sibling Caleb Jones, who was obtained in the exchange that sent Duncan Keith to Edmonton.
This ought to be an ‘fascinating’ exchange to think back on in a couple of seasons, particularly given the staggering implications for the Blackhawks in the current year’s draft. For the present, however, welcome to Chicago, Seth Jones, and hopefully he basically gives some extraordinary looks in a ‘Falcons sweater!
