My expectations of jones going into the game were quite high. The same would be said for DP. Anytime you are a projected 1 or 2 overall that's a lot of hype. While I think jones had a decent game it's more his size and his potential for a big man I think scouts like.
He is a decent skater and can flick a lot of defenders off due to his size. He is listed at 6'3 or 4 but looks much larger tbh. The one thing that bothered me about him was every time he was on the ice and wants the puck from a teammate he would keep smacking his stick on the ice. Not really a big fan of that move.
Tough to compare him to DP but in terms if skating, composure and puck distribution, pouliot wins. Jones has more of a alex edler or less mean chara type game. When he puts on weight to match his height he will be a strong defender capable at both ends of the ice
