    Looking for feedback/opinions on this guy. Haven't really seen much hype on him at all, but he's put up 6 points in his last two games for Red Deer, and is sharing the WHL scoring lead right now with 10 points through his first 7 games. Easily the highest-scoring 2005 eligible guy in either the OHL or WHL right now. 6'2" 195 lbs., late 86 b-date, plays for a terrific developmental program in Red Deer. Any thoughts, any aspects of his game that would hold him back from going pretty high in next year's draft?

    Yes. Two other 2005 eligibles who I know little about and are also off to hot starts (at least statistically) are:
    Kendall McArdle Moose Jaw 5'11 195 (Moose Jaw's leading scorer thus far 5 pts in 5 games)
    and
    Tim Krauss Vancouver 6'0 175 5 pts in 5 games. Krauss is American.

    On DF:
    Dustin Kohn Calgary 6'1 180 and Red Deer's Paul Kucerba 6'2 175 are also doing well on the scoreboard.

    More complete analysis of Jones, plus these players, would be greatly appreciated.

    McArdle

    Can't evaluate him as a player, but know he played for a few years at Burnaby Winter Club and was in U16 finals (no stats due to broken ankle), and was ranked 7th forward (location given as reason) in the U17 (for 6 available W. Pacific positions). Maybe results would have been different had he been there! Know that Brule, McArdle and Bradford made a formidable first line, whenever they played together.
