Hes not ranked that high but Mantha looks like that big first line winger we need.
It'd be #1 Monahan #2 Nichushkin #3 Mantha at fifth over all for me, based on our needs. Some of the players are so close together in skill level. Shinkaruk would be next because of his size, I'd rather not pick a defender in the top 10 if we don't get Jones.
It's been discussed a bit... It seems like Jones plays the left side, as he did in the WJC, and I guess in Portland as well. (Although I haven't watched him in Portland personally.)
Jones plays the right side in Portland except on the PP which is pretty common for rightys. I'm not saying Jones couldn't play the right side, he could. Sacco just wouldn't play him there. If we had a different coach I think that you could have any of EJ, Jones, Barrie, or Elliott adapt to the left side.
