To me it comes down to whether or not he can refine that aspect of his game, or if he's like Dion Phaneuf and doomed to make the same mistakes over and over.
Yes but this was Pietrangelo in his first WJC too if you don't remember, both dominated in the CHL but were not as dominant in their first WJC. Pietrangelo was dominant however in his second, and Jones probably would be too I bet but I don't expect to see him again in next years tournament.
