Charlie Conacher was clearly the line's best offensive weapon and biggest physical presense. According to contemporary sources, Primeau was the key to that line. He drove the line's succes.

That leaves Jackson as the least important guy.

Schmidt is the leader of not only this line but the entire team obviously, so no - I'm not expecting Jackson to carry burden's here.
Schmidt isn't really skilled enough to carry an offenive line. He can do the dirty work, but he can't lead the offensive charge.
