    In the promo before the draft, they were showing pics of jones as a kid, and one of them was when he was wearing an avs jersey.

    So if they choose Jones, they'll have two kids who grew up as avalanche fans (the first being Matt Duchene)

    Nice. That's cool that they've got that connection with their young players.

    Don't they all say something like that when they're drafted?

    But yes, Landeskog mentioned it before he was drafted.

    I was hoping they'd get 1st overall so they could get Jones. I smell collusion, but I don't care at this point. Happy for my bro who's a big Avs fan and I was actually a fan of theirs when they won the Stanley Cup. That was the only time I've been a fan of a team that won their championship until the San Francisco Giants started winning the World Series. Hope the Sharks do someday lol.

    Anyhoo, Jones goes 1st. Now I'm curious if FLA goes Drouin to complement Huberdeau or do they want another center to replace Weiss if he doesn't resign this summer? So interesting.

    Seth Jones is the nice story being an Avs fan obviously and will most likely be the pick. But oh man could you imagine a Mac-Duchene-Lando line in the future? Tons of both skill and grit, or Duchene and Drouin tearing up the league?

    But yes the Avs need that cornerstone defender that they'll get with Jones. If Johnson gets his game together that's potentially an absolutely dominant pairing.

    And drafting and then trading Lindros was one of the best things they could have ever done. I think it was the beginning of setting up a beast of a team which ultimately lead to 2 Stanley Cups.

    Key word being "IF", the kid's still young so if he can figure out a way to deal with the expectations placed upon him then he will succeed.

    Jones should take some of that burden from Johnson which will ultimately enable him to loosen up and focus on playing the game.

    Don't forget as well that the Avs are going through personnel changes which could change everything.

    I think under a new coach/system with Jones coming in and making an impact, you'll see Stastny and Johnson both rebound.
