Jones has all the tools without a doubt. Personally though Drouin had me hoping that if there wasn't a season the Flames would be lucky enough to grab him. Call it a prospect crush but Drouin to me reminds me of a better skating Danny Heatley, or even better, a Kovalchuk style player. That's an attractive prospect to many as well.

I just think many teams are still leery of taking defence so high IF, keyword IF there is still highly skilled forwards available as well, unless there is an organizational hole.

With all that said I still have Jones going 2nd on my list. I watched as many of the WJC games as my pvr could tape and I enjoyed what I saw from Jones. Him and Trouba were by far the best pairing in the tournament.
