Yeah I understand that, and Erik Johnson even has a lot of similarities. But in my opinion he's simply better at everything than all of those players. Not necessarily by a lot in every category, but it's all better. No one was sure if Myers was a good enough playmaker to QB a powerplay. Hedman wasn't bad at anything but some of his talents weren't elite quality. Jones is simply excellent at everything. Not just good, but excellent.

I still probably wouldn't take him first overall (or second) just because the track record is against him, but I wouldn't think less of a team that did.
