changed year-to-year. Heck, when he won the Hart his partner was Todd Reirdon.
I remember him playing with Jeff Finley, Bryce Salvador, Jamie Rivers, Marc Bergevin, etc. I don't remember him ever really having a steady defensive partner.
The only time I remember him playing with Al MacInnis was on the power-play though.
Precisely. St. Louis had the benefit of having Chopper or Prongs out for pretty much the entire game as they both played the majority even strength on seperate lines. I think Chris even made Backman look better than he was for a season or two, but I can't recall.
nope. Al made Jackman look fantastic that season and with Pronger coming back from the potentially career ending surgery the following season the future looked bright. Well Al got injured the following season and Laurie firesaled Pronger and...well yeah.
