This tournament has been a red flag to me. Beating up 16 year olds that are half your size in Portland all season is one thing. IMO his weaknesses are being exposed big time against the world class talent.

Teams with top five draft picks should take one of the great center prospects available despite their needs and take a project guy with upside like Bowey, etc... early to mid second round.
If you replaced Portland with Halifax, similar things could be said about MacKinnon.

Anyways, Jones hasn't played near as bad as you said he has
