The reason the Blake comparison doesn't fit is Blake was far more physical and an in your face type of player than Jones is. Jones is physical but he's not the type of guy to be in the middle of a scrum or string together a bunch of big hits in a row. It's why Pronger's a bad comparison. The closest prospect to Pronger/Blake right now is Aaron Ekblad.

He's got similar offensive upside to Zubov, and Zubov was an elite defender after he was traded to Dallas. He could be physical when he wanted to. That's Jones to a core, only difference is Jones is a a few inches taller.
