Interesting. I'd almost flip those: I think he's got a fairly high floor because of the contribution he can bring, at minimum, to a 2nd PP unit, but his upside seems lower than most of the other defensive prospects (because of his questionable skating, defensive zone play, etc.)

We may well end up with Pulock--and there's a lot to like about him as as a player and as a person. But I'm not sure he's a value-pick at 11, and I'm not sure that the Flyers wouldn't be better suited to move the pick for a guy with a more well-rounded game and a few more years of development.

Every bit as NHL ready as Jones. Very mature & reliable defender who can do a bit of everything
Ristolainen might be the best fit out of the non-Jones defensive prospects, but it would take a bit of luck to get him to slip to 11, I think.
