2) While EJ will eventually take one of those point spots; I think right now they belong to Woywitka/Backman(which ever one survives the Draft day trades). You need a heavy shot out there with Jax(Jax was surprisingly efficient at distributing the puck but doesn't have that good of a shot) and for now those two have the heaviest shots on our Blueline.
It's true that Jax doesn't have the traditional big shot from the point, but, he makes really good decisions with the puck, and is without a doubt, the best on this team at keeping the puck from getting out of the offensive zone on his point - Somthing that Brewer is just awful at. I can't count the number of power plays that got disrupted because he couldn't keep the puck in.
Jackman is clearly not a #1 pp pairing, but I think he is solid on the 2d pair.
