There's a big difference between getting beat one-on-one (and Coburn has had big-time problems with getting burned one-on-one this year), and not knowing how to simply assume a position between two attacking players.
So both Carle and Kimmo have cost us a goal with exceeding poor 2 on 1 play, Kimmo even added onto his by giving the puck away in the first place.
And it's not just "assuming a position", it's actually stopping the pass, Jones excels in particular at getting into good positions and then not making the play.
