Question from anonymous (Westerville, Ohio): What is your scouting report on the Flyers this year?
Jones: Well, 22 to 24 of the teams are .500 teams. There are four elite teams and there about three or four are above average. I’d put the Flyers in that above-average category. The four elite teams are Ottawa, Carolina, Detroit and Anaheim (once they get Scott Niedermayer back). The Rangers are in the class of the Flyers. I’m not sure how much Jaromir Jagr has left in the tank. He looks disinterested and that’s a big concern.
If you missed the interview Alanah did with Keith, you can listen to it here and also buy the book, Jonesy”.
Today I had a chance to chat with Keith Jones—“Jonesy”—about his 8 year NHL career with the Washington Capitals, the Colorado Avalanche and Philadelphia Flyers. Jonesy was good enough to share the story of his unusual journey to the NHL, as well as his media work these days with Versus.
Jonesy has a book out, co-authored with ESPN’s John Buccigross (whom Paul interviewed earlier), titled “Jonesy: Put Your Head Down and Skate: The Improbable Career of Keith Jones.” The proceeds from this book go to Alex’s Lemonade Stand, a Philadelphia-area charity which helps the childhood victims of cancer.
The interview can be heard on the flash player below, (or you can download the mp3 audio file here).
