Great performance! Was so nervous for him in the shootout. His first game and he has to face Selanne, Koivu, and Getzlaf. Talk about trial by fire! Congratulations, Jones on your first game and first win!
i have no idea what i'm doing

Kid was really impressive in the shootout. Just didn't bite on anything. Kudos to you Marty, welcome to the big time!!

What a game for this kid! His first NHL save is a point blank shot from Saku Koivu, then he makes several critical saves throughout the game, especially in the 3rd period, and then his shootout performance was beyond impressive. He made it look so easy, like it was pee wees shooting against him.

Didn't control the rebound allowing Getzlaf to score then got deked out of his jock by Perry from in close.

I don't think so. The best place for him with be to stay here in L.A. behind Quick. If he chose to move or gets traded, I'm sure he will miss the teams D the helped him get those shut outs and our coaching staff's work with him.

we have a steal on scrivens this year. I think he's full cap hit is $625k right now. and he's probably going to want more money and he couldn't ask for a better opportunity right now in his contract year to showcase what he can do as a number 1.

hell, it may even be wise to move him at deadline...

Best place team-wise? Yes. He can play for a contender. Best place on a personal level? No. Unless he strives for mediocrity. He has shown he can be a solid goalie, and a team will offer him No. 1 money, more than we can afford. Is he a product of the system? Possibly, yes. Our defense has been very solid, and Ranford is possibly the best in the business. But that hasn't stopped Bernier, why would it stop Scrivens.

Would you prefer to give him a $1~ million raise, or keep Jones at the same price as Scrivens this year and spend that money elsewhere. We're going to need at least one SAH defenseman with Willie and Greene on their last year, Schultz is also a free agent although an unknown. And we don't have many guys that could fill the hole in Manchester, Forbort is a two-way guy, DesLauriers is making a move to LW, Miller is more of an offensive guy, Roach maybe could fill in, Bodnarchuck is Martinez 2.0 only weaker, Campbell could work. But then again, would you rely on a 20-something year old kid with no NHL experience to be the guy? Outside of Forbort, I don't see a guy that I can say will be a week-in week-out defenseman in the NHL. Also, you have the never-ending LW debate and the unknown cap space next year.

When the game went into OT, I thought: "The Kings better win this thing in OT after killing the penalty, because Jones would be toast in a shootout". Then, when the shootout came, I cringed when Perry, Getzlaf, and Selanne among others moved in, fulling expecting a rookie in his first NHL game to be no match for the Ducks' big guns. What am I going to do now with all of this crow I have to eat?!

I was impressed with his performance being his first in the NHL and against one of the top teams in the west the Ducks. He remained calm throughout the game, positioned himself pretty good against the shooter and in the shootout he really came through. The Kings are solid in net. The weak spot is their power play. Man does it stink. Unbelievable with the talent they have they should score more. Heck, they should just forget about it and play even strength, that's how bad their pp is.
