I am trying to figure out who your team is...

- You have a King's player as your avatar HOWEVER, given that Doughty went 2nd overall and there was no second guessing involved, I wonder if you are a Ducks fan.

- If you meant Fowler, your comment would make perfect sense but then why do you have an LA King Avatar?

I am confused.

Edit : Your profile says your favourite team is Anaheim. Who is the avatar of?

To everyone saying he, or any prospect can't fall, Grigs was the consensus #2 at this point last year, and he fell to buffalo.

Yep and if MacKinnon scores 20 points this season he will fall. But then, the draft is in 8 months and there is 80 plus games to go.

His slapshot wasnt very hard either.

To be honest, i didnt see the hype i expected to,

He did look overly nervous handling the puck, and even fell down on the blue line trying to stickhandle and caused a shorthanded 2 on 1.
In the game I watched they had:

Pouliot-Rutkowski
Wotherspoon-Hanson
Viveiros-Jones

I would rather have seen Jones with either Pouliot or Wotherspoon and have Viveiros and Hanson as the 3rd pairing.

Pouliot and Rutkowski have been a pair for a long time (especially on the PP), doubt they would split them apart and I understand why Wotherspoon is with Hanson, but Tyler and Seth would be a awesome duo to watch.

I only caught the first two periods against Kelowna, but Jones was looking pretty rough last night.

I was only able to catch the final 3 minutes of the game but I don't think I saw him on the ice at all. What did he struggle with?

It's funny, from reading on here people have said he's looked average. The one full game of his I watched I thought he was fantastic.

He had a few awkward moments handling the puck, including a couple of giveaways. He had some great moments, too; like racing back to nullify a breakaway after a broken play. I've seen almost all of his games, and at no point would I say that he's looked average. He's just going to need a little bit of time to acclimate to his new surroundings.

He scored and looked good. Was constantly jumping up into the rush and pushing the play.

Well he was visibly exhausted but he did show a lot of his tools out there. His performance at the U-18 is still the driving force behind his hype IMO. Still haven't seen him hit that level yet.

The WHL is a high level of competition. It will be interesting to see how he fares.

I saw Jones has 1 pt in 6 games as of right now. At what point do you guys think his point production will really affect his draft rankings and point total do you guys expect from him?

Sounds like Jones just picked up an assist after I posted this, so 2 pts in 7 games, 7th game still in progress

At the start of the year I said 40 points was my expectation, so I'm shocked a bit at his slow start.

In the end I don't think those types of numbers really matter to most decision makers at the NHL level, compared to how they are viewed by people on websites like this.
