Jackmans 24 assists in 70 games blows away the more 'offensively gifted' Backman's 11 assists in 61 games....and I'd be willing to guess that Backman has more turnovers than Jax as well. Jackman did come on strong in the 2nd half of the season, and was by far the most effective D-man on the team as the season drew to a close. Offensively, defensively, 2-way, whatever.....I think Jackman proved to be more valuable than Brewer, Backman or any other D-man for that matter last year.
I'd agree. Jackman had a great year and played a much better all around game than Backman.
