He's going to be a fine NHL dman no question, but there is no way I'd select him at 1. I personally have him around 5-7.
Same, I just love the way he plays and think he could be a perfect fit with the Flames. There are so many great forwards available at the next draft, I really hope we end up with a top 5 pick.

I can see why Jones is hyped so much but think he needs to simplify his game more. He was trying to do too much and kept turning the puck over. I'd rank him about 3-5.
