on top of that...jones is in his first year of jr. hockey after two years in the NTDP...while Murray is into his 3rd jr of jr. (and is a jr older than jones).

if you asked me who i thought would pan out as the better player i'd say jones v. quickly...but to say that Jones is *currently* better than Murray? sorry, but that just makes me laugh...in a *here and now* sense, Murray is easily the better player.
Don't get me wrong, as I said before, I'm a huge Murray fan. He just isn't as dynamic as Jones. Murray is a fantastic passer, but Jones is much better at carrying the puck and leading the rush. And if you honestly don't think that Jones is able to dominate other teams, you need to actually watch a game. He can downright man handle anyone in the corners. Murray is a much more polished player, but I'd still rather have Jones for a game tomorrow, or in 10 years
