If the Panther scouts belueve Jones is the best player available, you don't pass up on him because of Gudbranson/Petrovic.

Or to put it more simply ; you don't pass up on a potential two way impact defenseman because you have two solid, projectable, but somewhat unspectacular defenseman who happen to grip the stick the same way.

I would actually prefer us to go Forward too, but it has nothing to do with relatively unproven assets in our organisation.
good point but that high up in the draft, I go franchise forward over d-man
