Flyers put D Randy Jones through re-entry waivers; should the Predators bite?

New, comments

The Philadelphia Flyers have reportedly put defenseman Randy Jones through re-entry waivers as they recall him from the AHL, which means that any team that wants him would split paying his salary 50/50 with Philadelphia.

Given the Predators' struggles early this season, is it worth bringing in a veteran for only half of his $2.75 million salary?
