Seth Jones is a rich kid with a famous father. I don't think its even a big deal anymore that Jones is a black player. Iginla has been one of the leagues biggest and most respected star players over the last 10 years.

If the NHL had a Yao Ming phenom type player coming from China or somewhere... Something like that would get way more media attention and probably have huge marketing potential.
The real marketing potential for Jones would be if he got drafted by Dallas.
