First time poster here.

I fully believe Jones is the next big thing on D. That being said, it will be quite some time before he even begins to scratch the surface of his full potential, as others here have noted. Last year, Doughty became the first defenseman drafted in the top 10 to win the Cup within five years of being drafted since Niedermayer in '95. Granted, players drafted that high are often joining poor teams. But I'd assume the Flyers would be more likely to seek their much-needed stud defenseman via trade than through the draft.
