Why shouldn’t the Pens get in the Seth Jones sweepstakes?

Jones is also a free agent in 2022 and has told the Columbus Blue Jackets he will not be re-signing with them, a favor really since it gives them a chance to trade him for value now and doesn’t string their hopes along ala a John Tavares in New York situation. The most common trade partners cited, at least in this league-wide view from The Athletic are Philadelphia, Chicago, Winnipeg and Colorado.
