I also, am not sold on Jones. Like, at all. Watched him play 3 times and I just didn't see what the scouts see in him I guess. He played well but I didn't see him as being a "special player" or anything like that.
I agree on your skill assesment, minus the jones part, I've seen him play twice and thought he looked awesome each time he played. No defensive mistakes and was a key player on Offence. Great stride too. I would much rather take one of the other three first though.
Particularly for me, it's Barkov. I think he's got Malkin-like abilities (probably not quite on that level, but as a very young 17 year old, he's over a PPG in a men's league) , and he's the youngest player in this draft. I agree with the monahan- toews comparison as well, but I think Barkov is a little step up from that, just on his larger frame alone.
