Even if that means they do miss out on the next Pronger.
Doesn't Jones play the left side though? I have no problem with a right-handed left side playing top pairing defender, but they need to be comfortable playing that way already. EJ sucks on the left side for instance.

As for the other discussions, we'd of course be lucky to get one of Jones, Drouin or Barkov... but I still want Jones the most. I would not be at all upset with Drouin or Barkov, specifically Drouin since I like him the most of any forwards in the draft. He's such a strong shooter that he would solve most of our problems and round out our top 9 going forward.
