The Philadelphia Flyers have been labelled as one of if not the top destination for disgruntled Columbus Blue Jackets defenseman Seth Jones.
However it sounds like Philly might be on everybody's list except for Jones'.
According to NHL insider Elliotte Friedman, Jones is willing to sign an extension with a team but not Philly at the moment.
“There are a couple of places Seth Jones would sign long-term now, not sure Philadelphia is one of them.”
This is a big blow to the Flyers' offseason plans as they continue to try and target a top tier defenseman for their blueline.
Friedman on 31 Thoughts says he's not so sure the Flyers will be able to pull off a Seth Jones trade, Flyers not certain Jones will commit to them. There are a couple of places Seth Jones would sign long-term now, not sure Philadelphia is one of them. #AnytimeAnywhere #CBJ
