With his dad being a professional for awhile I think he will have less trouble dealing with the outside things most rookies aren't used too.
Now hang on a second, are you really saying he'd be better than Brewer and Lee? In all seriousness though, why don't they allow players to play in the AHL as soon as they are drafted? A player like Jones would serve better in the first pairing in the AHL than a low minute guy in the NHL, and another year in juniors is unnecessary. It seems for top level prospects, they're either forced to be rushed or to stay behind.
