Not so sure, watch the interview FF51 posted. When he is asked who he wants to play against, Halliday quotes former players from GTHL not the USHL high-flyers. Could be he isn't yet immersed. I go back to my "on the fence" argument for now.

You might be right but the fact that he showed up for the USHL camp and didnít show up for our orientation day or whatever you want to call it tells me heís picking them over the dogs hope Iím wrong but Iím not sure I will be

Ben Jones getting signed to ELC so soon after being draft in the 7th round (and 12th Vegas Knight player selected) in the 2017 Entry Draft – speaks volumes to the incredible season Jones had last year – and how highly the Golden Knights think of him as a potential NHL player.

Congratulations Ben Jones – on a truly amazing accomplishment!

What have you seen that suggests he's sitting on the fence?

He hasn't shown up here at all. Yet, he has shown up there, put on the skates and led their training camp in scoring.

If he had shown up to both places, or neither, I would agree. But, there has been nothing from him that suggests he's coming here. I don't know what you've seen or heard that can be construed as sitting on the fence.

Merely a guess on my part and if our GM had not so quick at stating his confidence after the draft, we would not be having this conversation.

Jones gets Knighted
By Bill Potrecz - June 5, 2018

http://www.bpsportsniagara.ca/jones-gets-knighted/

“I got a call two weeks ago and they mentioned they wanted to sign me,” Jones said. “They were really impressed with my season last year and the work I’ve put in so far this off season to get better and improve myself.”

Jones has been working out diligently. He trains twice a week in London with a skating coach and then spends two other days in Aurora with former NHL forward Gary Roberts, working on conditioning.

Based on his ridiculous quote, The GM appears to be young, naieve and full of bravado.

I canNot imagine that a grizzled veteran OHL GM would ever make a Public comment like this .

Based on Halliday’s relative inaction towards Niagara thus far ... I would be shocked beyond belief if he signs with Niagara.

I agree with FF
