I badly, badly wish one of the three forwards would have fallen to us, but we made the right pick with what was left. If Poile and Trotz can work their magic with Jones, we have the choice three years down the road of either running one of the most stacked blue lines in the league or trading Weber/Josi/Jones for a kings ransom. It isn't perfect, but it'll do.

As for the next year debate, we aren't contenders, so there's two ways to look at it.

1. It doesn't matter if we win, so give him time to develop in the CHL and don't rush him.

2. It doesn't matter if we win, so give him tons of minutes and let him makes mistakes this year and learn from them.

I'll trust Poile and Trotz to make that call.
