That's a good point, but Pietrangelo still didn't make as many bad mistakes as Jones has. He didn't even play that much in his first tournament.
I'd seen Pietrangelo play in Niagara before his first WJC and he had the same cerebral style that he has today. He's always had that reputation of being the smartest guy on the ice (Lidstrom-esque), whereas I've never seen that with Jones or heard it said about him. Jones' athleticism is incredible though, but I don't know if he has the hockey sense to be the elite defenseman that some people see.
