In regards to Jones... you aren't going to get that level of talent any other way but to draft, develop and wait. A team isn't going to trade you a Pietrangelo/Weber level defenseman in their prime for an 18 year old Jones.

Why would they when they have that franchise #1 d already?

If that deal is on the table then sure... but no team will give up that already developed #1 in their prime for a player that will take several years to get to that level... and obviously there is a risk that they never reach that level either.
