The more I think about it, the more I like the idea of selecting Jones. Yes, defensemen take longer to develop. Yes, we need offense. However, I also think that not only is Jones the BPA but we've also still got at least Bjugstad, Grimaldi and Howden coming up over the next few seasons. If Jones develops the way the scouts think he will, it gives us the opportunity to move Kulikov down to the 2nd pairing and cultivate some sorely needed depth at defense.
