I think Jonesy's offense will improve as we bring in/up more puckmovers who can connect with solid outlet passes. In basketball terms (yeah, I'm going there) Jones is a fastbreak scoring player, and right now it really feels like we're still a half-court team. Jones produces best on breakaways, when he can use his speed to his advantage and create separation. He simply doesn't have the skillset to put up a lot of points running around trying to cycle the puck in the attacking zone. His comparable IMO is Jeff Friesen, which I know is not a great comparable, but the guy could put up some serious points when his speed was utilized.

Get more quarterback-type defensemen in here (yeah, I'm going there too) and I think we will see more of what David Jones can do.
