Barkov vs Jones is closer for me
I disagree. You take BPA no matter what position they are and for me, and a lot of scouts, that's Jones. Last year you could essentially choose one aspect of a dman you were looking for and there was someone that was elite at it for you to take... It's similar again this year, except that no matter what qualities you're looking for, the answer is Jones. There's nothing he can't do
