Ryan Jones Returns with Two-Year Deal
All was quiet on the Predators front for the last few weeks. This news should have people talking for a little while, deciding where best Mr. Locks of Love will fit into the line up every night.
I think he will perform very well if he is allowed to be consistently paired with a solid line. Like Joel Ward, he has the ability to score some timely goals. And like former Predator, now Philadelphia Flyer Scott Hartnell, this kid is great at staying in front of the net and waiting for that perfect pass.
On an obscure side note, every time I hear his name, I think back to Full House when Joey was the host of a kid's show called "Ranger Joe". It had a theme song that went "Ranger Joe, Ranger Joe, he's the greatest guy I know...Ranger Joe!" Insert "Ryan Jones" where Ranger Joe would be and he's already got his own theme song. My mind, it is a curious thing. You don't have to tell me; I already know I'm weird.
