I remember reading that Conn Smythe gave most of the credit to the Kid Line's success to Primeau, considering both Jackson and Conacher to be lazy beneficiaries of their center. Of course, Smythe also kept Jackson out of the Hall of Fame until the 70's due to his disapproval of Jackson's high living, and perhaps he had a certain affinity for the classy "Gentleman Joe" that tainted his judgement in later years.
