There's only a whisper of a chance that a player like Jones needs 4-5 years to crack this line-up, and that would probably only be if he suffered an injury or something else pretty dramatic. Maybe an extra year in the minors, then start out on the bottom pairing. I'd be a bit leery about sending him to the Phantoms as it is, given the mediocre level of preparation for the big-league club that seems to be going on. Please feel free to contradict me.
It would NHL or juniors next year for him. He's not eligible for the AHL next year. From my understanding he's not being challenged in the WHL and should be NHL ready for next year.
