Jones brings the skating ability and the booming shot that should at least carve out a niche at the very worst in the NHL.
But the question is going to be whether he has Chara's desire to work himself into an elite player.

Because I sure as hell don't trust the Caps to push him in that direction if he doesn't. Then you are still left with an Erik Johnson which is not terrible by any means but at the end of the day there were two legit #1 centers taken with the next few picks. That's how this draft is lining up.
