32 points in his first 51 NHL games.
One thing we can get excited for is a kuzma article tomorrow.
then that gives schroeder like 3 more years since Ebbett didnt play that season until he was 25
Ebbett was pretty good in his limited time for us last year.
Never understood all the hate for him.
Then again, I never really understood all the hate for Ballard either.
Oh wait, we all love Ballard now right?
Yeah that's why I don't get all the hate for ebbett. HE's a perfectly fine player that can come in on short notice in the short term and play some minutes and contribute offensively as well. It's not his fault this team is paper thin at centre. He's doing what he can.
and to add.. he's doing what he can, and it's more than schroeder can give the team right now.
agreed that he is contributing more right now, the "he's doing what he can" comment is ridiculously dumb though, you think Schroeder wasnt giving all that he could?
And Schroeder wasn't doing all he could? He was creating lots of chances with Raymond and Hansen, yet gets demoted because the chances just weren't going in at the time, and is stuck with two plugs on the fourth line.
Ultimately though, Schroeder played how many games with linemates like Raymond/Hansen/Booth? And ended up with 5 pts...
Ebbett lucked his way into 3 in one night.
Andrew Ebbett is so extremely far from the long-term solution for this team...but i think it also drives home the point that Schroeder is not ready to be a productive NHLer.
No, just no.
Still, with a 3 pointer, looks out of place and clearly not an NHL'er. I'd love it if he went to a rival and was a regular. Maybe that's the plan all along?
Waive him and he'll be Chicago's third line C after building his value up?
With Selanne and Ryan on his wings. Though I guess seeing how people are reacting to Hodgson that'd qualify him as a #1 center.
That didn't stop the Ducks from waiving him 2 games into the next season, nor did it stop him from playing in 5 different organizations in the next 2 years.
The Ebbett hate is more on AV for favouring him over Schreoder and putting him on the PK.
Ebbett belongs in depth 13th forward the way he was last year. nothing more. Even though he got 3 points today he still looks way too slow to be a undersized 5"8 player.
I give him what he deserves today though, he had a good game.
I still think schreoder is the better player now, and would show it if he was getting played on the second line.
And every dog has his day
This thread has changed my opinion about our win tonight... I went from being joyful to just being bitter that Ebbett scored 3 points.
Thanks a lot Orca, I had almost gotten around to forgetting that our head coach didn't plan for his best goal scorer to come back from a concussion because he had an AHL guy on the 1st line for no discernable reason.
