Jackman is fine as long as you don't expect too much from him. IMO, Jackman is an ideal #4 d-man, maybe a #3 d-man but he's paid like a #2/#3 d-man. Him being slightly overpaid I think creates some negative sentiment about him from some fans. Jax has his flaws but I'm fine with him. I don't really see him going anywhere. The problem is that oftentimes Jax is used as the Blues #1 or #2 d-man and he's simply not good enough and he gets exposed sometimes. That's not his fault, it's that the Blues simply don't have someone better a lot of the time but Jax still gets the blame. I think if he was utilized properly (on the 2nd pairing), the average Blues fan's opinion of him would be better. He's nowhere near the whipping boy Brewer is though...
