Well, Jones has the advantage of being in a program that focuses a lot on strength training and is a year older than Barkov.
Even though Jones is more athletic and always will be, I take the player that has better sense every single time.

If anyone is bored without hockey (and isn't interested in watching the Sabres replay that's on MSG in an hour), TSN put up the Mentorship Cup on-demand, which is a scrimmage between the best 97's in Canada (so 2015/16 draft).
Here's the game: Period 1, Period 2, Period 3, Shootout (there was no OT).
The complete roster is here.

If you want to know some names to watch, I'll just go by region: Giorgio Estephan (Alberta), Mathew Barzal (British Columbia), Tyson Verhelst (Manitoba), Luc Deschênes (New Brunswick), Nathan Noel (Newfoundland), Connor McDavid (Ontario), Jérémy Roy (Québec), Jayden Halbgewachs (Saskatchewan).
The combination of Barzal/McDavid/Noel likely represent the best '97 born forwards in each of the three leagues, as Barzal and McDavid have went first overall in their leagues already and Noel is likely to go first in the Q.
