Jones looks to be forcing things a bit too much and almost playing nervous but his talent in undeniable. I really have to question anyone that would take Drouin over him.
I would have a hard time believing anyone can accurately rate these guys due to the different amount of viewings, the different leagues, the different age groups they compete in. If they were all in the same league I'd give some credence to it, but realistically, some are playing against NHL players while others are playing against 16 and 17 year old boys.
Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
