But, without him, the line simply would not have worked. He provided the glue, the playmaking, and the defense that let the other two play offense. Where does that stand in who's the "best player"? If canon is correct, Jackson is. I'd probably agree with that sentiment. How much better? I couldn't tell you.
I didn't mean for it to have to come to me bashing Joe Primeau, lol. He's a fine 2nd line center (and keep in mind I'm picking your team to go all the way!), but he was no way a better player than Jackson - thats bull.
