RD Seth Jones (2013, 4th overall, Nashville) II
 
Anyone with an opinion ? how does Seth Jones compare to Dougie Hamilton ? Similar players ? Totally different ? I know a year in the WHL will help to see how Jones compares. But curious what your thoughts are now. Would you take one over the other ?

IHaveNoCreativity 07-26-2012 09:01 PM

Well at the same age Seth is better.

dan1el 07-26-2012 09:10 PM

Jones is much better IMO. I'm really high on him and think he'll be going first overall next year.

Flamester 07-26-2012 09:45 PM

both are differnt players. jones is more defensive minded, while hamilton is offense minded. there both really good tho.

KingJet* 07-26-2012 09:48 PM

Same playing styles, just Hamilton is more Offensive, Jones is more Defensive

byeyimini 07-27-2012 09:03 PM

Would you guys go so far as to project more point production in the NHL for Hamilton ? ...again, Jones hasn't even played a game in the WHL, so I'm just having fun here. This thread will be ancient history in a week. ;)

C'mon, Dougie Hamilton is alright, but Seth Jones will be a premier d-man. I'd take Seth Jones right now over Dougie Hamilton if there was a fantasy draft.

LatvianTwist 07-27-2012 11:18 PM

Jones will be an elite #1, Hamilton will be a solid top pairing guy. No slight to Hamilton, Jones is just that good.

Vasilevskiy 07-28-2012 05:22 AM

Similar but better, or much better

bruinsfan46 07-28-2012 05:31 AM

It will be very interesting to see how Jones does in the WHL this year. They're hard to compare because they've never competed against each other and have both been great at every level they played (although Dougie was a bit of a late bloomer, wasn't a tremendous midget player and didn't show his offensive skill his first year in the OHL). Dougie is more offensive, Jones is more defensive. Slight edge for Jones from what I've heard.

Gritzky98 07-28-2012 05:58 AM

Jones is the much better prospect

AmericanDream 07-28-2012 12:36 PM

I think Dougie is getting underrated on here a bit...

I love Seth Jones a ton, but the kid hasnt stepped foot on CHL ice yet, and people are stating he is clearly better then a kid like Hamilton who tore up the CHL....

dont get that one at all...

I would wait until at least 30 games into the season to see what kind of impact Jones has on the league first imo...

Minister of Offence 07-28-2012 01:02 PM

Seth Jones in my mind could be one of the most interesting defense prospects in recent memory.

sayheykid 07-28-2012 03:35 PM

We'll see how he looks in the W, but I don't expect he'll disappoint. Jones is a rare talent as a prospect.

Agreed, it's really hard to state anyone is really that far ahead of Hamilton. He's huge, he's a phenomenal skater, tremendous offensive talent and a developing defensive and physical game. I understand Jones is considered a rare prospect but Hamilton is pretty rare too.

I don't think Hamilton is getting underrated at all.

It's just that the guy who he's being compared to in this thread, is THAT damn good.

We are also talking about players that differ in age by 3 years, so that needs to be mentioned here.

mooseOAK* 07-30-2012 12:38 PM

Seth Jones reminds me of Chris Pronger.

InfinityIggy 07-30-2012 12:41 PM

Jones >>> Hamilton, at least thats how it going to be on HFBoards for some time.

Jones is better at the same age. Hamilton has done nothing but improve leaps and bounds since he was drafted. If you asked me who I could take today id take Hamilton as he is looking like he is NHL ready.

The draft is still a year away, a lot can happen in that time and who knows, Jones might slip like Grigorenko or Couts. Hard to say, anything can happen.

Agreed.

Right now, I'd take Hamilton. At least he's old enough to play in the show right now! :)

I'm still reserving forming a strong opinion on Jones until I've actually seen him play in the Dub. I suspect, based on all accounts, that he'll be fine, but he's still a year away from his draft, so plenty of time to be properly evaluated.

Have you never watched him during any U-18 events or anything? It's tough when a prospect isn't in the CHL for us people up in Canada, but I've still managed to see him play 5-10 times online.

Tim Vezina Thomas 07-31-2012 11:10 AM

I think Dougie Hamilton will be a star for a number of years.

But, from what I've heard Seth Jones could be the number one pick.

Right now I'm taking Dougie Hamilton, but if Jones proves in his WHL season that hes the number one pick and an elite prospect, I'd have to take Jones. Dougie will be a star, but Jones could be more than that.

Leafs fan?

dan1el 07-31-2012 11:27 AM

I'm really high on Jones. I think he's going number 1, and will be a strong force in the league for a while. I'll take Jones.
