Yes, in this sense they essentially are. Obviously each player is unique, but using that as a justification to ignore clear trends is foolish. I haven't seen Jones play, but I think it's safe to say his size provides him with some notable advantages. Size-advantaged junior players often hit a wall once half the league is as big as them. Moreover, everything I've read seems to indicate he's all tools and no toolbox. If the Capitals were the Red Wings, I'd say go for it, but toolboxes aren't standard issue in Washington.
