Jones was widely considered the best player in the draft. I am ecstatic that we got him. Think about how long all these guys are signed for. We are in an incredible position defensively and offensively. Jones is going to open up a lot of options for us on the power play. I think the reason that Jones fell to us was that the teams picking ahead of us wanted a clearer instant impact player. Defensemen take longer than forwards to have that type of impact. We are one of the best teams in the league for developing defensemen, so Jones should have all the support he needs to become a great defenseman.

This allows us to put Ellis, Blum, and Ekholm on the trade block. We should aim for a proven commodity, and not another draft pick.
