The top selections who play in this tournament are unaffected by the performance of others because the sample size is too small. It's also why guys like Seguin and Duchene, who did not even make Team Canada in their draft year, remain top picks and go on to make the NHL the following year.
After these WJC's I wouldn't be shocked if Drouin has bumped Jones out of the consensus #2 slot...
