CHI Acquires Seth Jones from CBJ; Re-Sign Him to 8-Year Extension Worth $9.5M Per


Recommended Posts

Seth Jones had told the Blue Jackets he would only consider signing an extension with either Dallas or Chicago, Slap Shots has learned, so that’s where Columbus focused its efforts on trading the latest player to ask out of Columbus.


(Have you thought about an email, JD?)


When the Stars dropped out, the Jackets then sent the defenseman to the Blackhawks for a bounty that included Adam Boqvist (perhaps at least an equally effective player), a flip of 2021 first-rounders that elevated the Jackets 20 spots in the order, plus a first-rounder and second-rounder. If Chicago understood its leverage, then GM Stan Bowman surely didn’t use it.


Then, to compound the folly, the Blackhawks gave Jones a mind-boggling eight-year deal worth an average value of $9.5 million despite a rather steady decline that included a bottoming-out 2020-21. Good luck on that.
