It's not really a knock on Jack either, but Voynov isn't going to get you a Carter in a trade. Jack was the extra defenseman that Voynov made expendable.
Jack just wasn't putting it together with Doughty in the lineup. On paper, a Jack and Drew pairing should have been as good as a Suter-Weber pairing, it just never worked out.
Also, I don't think Martinez, Drewiske or Harrold were looked as a top 4 as a rookie. Martinez still has the potential to be a top 4, but Drewiske and Harrold were always bottom pairing guys.
