Except for the bloodline comment, I heard the same stuff about Eric & Jack Johnson, Boumeister, Jovanowski and a dozen other d-men. They all turned out excellent d-men but not one was elite. And my gut feeling is Jones will fall into that group. MacKinnon will be elite and so will Drouin. These two - especially MacKinnon - are difference makers. i don't see Jones that way.
