This will all be closer to reality if he plays in the WHL, too...with a more frequent game schedule and a closer to NHL type of day to day life.
Jones, as I see him, is only going to get better, I agree.
Do you believe that Seth Jones is better than Ryan Murray or Matt Dumba?
My two cents is that Jones' current pro-counterpart is Simon Despres and I believe that he will develop along a similar path. I'll asterisk by saying Despres is probably one of the best AHL defenseman not playing in the NHL. If he weren't in the Pens' organization he probably would be. He's 20.
