I believe he is NHL ready, a real sleeper. Watching the 2008 AHL playoffs, (Manitoba still lost) he just absolutely shut down Gilbert Brule and Derrick Brassard. I came away very impressed. He is very solid defensively, does not bring much offensively, but is loud and vocal, and just shuts guys down. A great free agent signing by you guys over the summer
Well the fact that our blueline's been decimated by injury after injury, and he's yet to see a single game in Dallas, should tell you he's rather low on the Stars depth chart, and will most likely spend the year in the minors. If any team bothered to ask for him, I wouldn't be surprised if Jackson jumped on the first offer.
