Jovanovski, maybe, he is considerably better than Stuart or Morris ever have been at any point in their respective careers.
In the past two seasons, Jack has amassed 78 points in 162 games, which ranks him within the top 20 of defensemen in scoring. In that time frame, he has scored as many or more points than players like Seabrook, Letang, Gonchar, Suter, Edler, E. Johnson, and Phaneuf. Over the past two seasons he also cracks the top 20 list in overall icetime.
People rag on Johnson as if he won't get any better, which is ridiculous when you consider he is still only a 24 year old defenseman with about three and a half seasons worth of NHL experience.
