Martin Jones to SJS for a King's Ransom


Recommended Posts

If not enough people were already mad about trading Eddie Lack, not just because he was so popular and loveable, but because we only got a third, then they might not want to hear what boston got for Martin Jones.

Boston got a 2016 1st round pick and a 2011 5th round pick prospect in College for Martin Jones.

Martin Jones has played a grand total of 34 games in the NHL and has never been a No.1 guy. Meanwhile, Eddie Stork has played 82 games in the last 2 sesaons and has started for at least 50 of those games.

I guess the Milan Lucic deal doesn't look so bad after all.. 2015 1st, 2016 1st and a good offensive defencemen prospect in Miller.

What is this?


Boston trades goalie Martin Jones to San Jose

A delicious new wrinkle has been added to the San Jose-Los Angeles rivalry.

Four days after being traded to the Boston Bruins as part of the Milan Lucic deal, former L.A. Kings backup goaltender Martin Jones has been flipped to the San Jose Sharks, quickly shifting him back to the Pacific Division.

Boston receives the Sharks first-round draft pick in 2016 and unsigned prospect Sean Kuraly in return.

Martin was at the top of our list of players that we had targeted, Sharks GM Doug Wilson said in a release. Were extremely excited to have him on board.

The 25-year-old Jones played 15 games for the Kings in 2014-15, posting a .906 save percentage, 2.25 goals-against average and a 4-5-2 record. He is set to become a restricted free agent on July 1.

Jones played for Team Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Championship, posting a 2-0 record, a 1.50 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage, helping his country capture a gold medal. He also played for Canada at the 2010 world juniors, winning a silver medal.

With San Jose's former No. 1, Antti Niemi, off to Dallas, Jones will join 27-year-old Alex Stalock in the sharks crease next season.

The Sharks also extended depth goaltender Troy Grosenick, 26, this off-season.

Kuraly, a fifth-round draft choice of San Jose in 2011, is a 22-year-old forward who has spent the past three seasons with Miami University (Ohio) of the NCHC. In 40 games last season, Kuraly scored 19 goals and added 10 assists.

Well doesn't it make perfect sense? Them east coast guys don't know nothing about our players over here on the west coast, I mean, there's a four hour time difference. That's why Benning settled for a terrible return for lack.

Oh yeah I almost forgot we were trading Lack because 'next year he'll be a UFA that wants a bunch of money' because Benning doesn't like to overpay a starting goalie, right?

Lack is better than Talbot and Jones. How in the hell did we get such a crap return for him.

As per JB and TL...That was what the market dictated...I think most fans were expecting more,..NYR fans are most likely saying the same thing about Talbot.

Lack obviously does not inspire the long term confidence in other GM's (could also be said of our own GM who went and signed Ryan Miller).
