nhl hands and passing
nhl iq

Defense may not be fully ready but its okay. He is young and can work on it. Playing against a pumped team canada doesn't help you. Especially if you make a mistake early, it usually gets you off your game.

Jones looks to be a bigger and faster phaneuf (and I would love that). And to be honest, I think his iq is better than has been displayed in this tournament. Thats why I rank him No. 1.
We need another defensemen with a good shot, we have a lot of pass first D in our prospect pool.
