habs have Galchenyuk and Eller right now. I like Couturier, but anyone actually watch Seth Jones? He controls the game when he's on the ice - and he did it at the WJC against best in the world
I liked Jones' play at the WJC, but he was trying to do too much at times. Overhandling the puck. Forcing plays. Trying to get shots through bodies. He would have been much better if he settled down a bit, and let his teammates do their jobs.

I'm not sure it's a lack of hockey smarts, so much as just a young kid who is used to being needed to do everything. I think they are different things.

Edit: And I'm not trying to take anything away from Jones. He's going to be a stud. I just felt he made a bunch of mistakes by trying to influence the game too much, when the simple play was the better one. I think that's the type of thing that young players learn with time, and they simplify their games.
