I think that is the idea. I don't necessarily know whether or not he is, but I think the idea is that Jones could be a true #1 franchise guy. I don't think that Risto or Zadarov are projected that high. Sure it could happen with them but that is not their projected path at this point. I think they project to top out as top pair guys, but more likely will be top four guys.

I don't know how I would quantify that value. Is a #1 defenseman worth a pick and a good young player? Absolutely. Is a shot at a number 1 defenseman worth all that...not sure.
