07:24 AM ET 09.27 | This year, in perhaps a good sign in Edmonton, there was no room for Ryan Jones. In the end, neither the freshly signed one-way contract nor the past performances were enough to keep [Jones on the Oilers'] opening day roster. It didn't earn him an opportunity with one of the other 29 teams, either, so early next week, he'll report to the Oklahoma City Barons to try to work his way back to the NHL. "That's all I really can do. I'm not going to go down there and pout and bring down the guys who are there. I want to be a good team guy, a good leader, but at the same time, I'm going to do my damnedest to get back to the NHL," said Jones, who cleared waivers Thursday morning. "I'm playing for 30 teams now." Wingers Jesse Joensuu and Ryan Hamilton made their cases at training camp, while Jones didn't do enough.

It's not so much 'down there' as it is way out there.

He's got the goods but, he's pulled a Ben Eager on himself. Can't take anything for granted in today's NHL. You snooze .... you lose. Hope he finds his way back.

For real, be glad the minors will have you.

After that scary eye injury, he's lucky to be playing at all. He lost his edge though and has been playing very tentative since. I hope he finds his game. I always liked him.
