I don't mean after the draft and in 13 i mean right now.
His skating, strength and defensive play is that good already and he is going to get better, ie more consistent and confident.
I had Nathan 1st and he might still go 1st but Jones is really the guy I would want to build my team around , just like Renegade Stylings mentioned earlier in this thread.
Jones has the most potential in the 2013 draft but its still potential and its not reached yet. So lets not get carried away against Canada and Russia he was getting beat off the rush pretty badly a couple of times. I ain't worried about that all seeing how this is first WJC/CHL campaign, but I don't think he would be very good in the league right now, not close to 2nd pairing d man. That aint a problem too, but people are over hyping how good Jones is now...
