I'm an Oilers fan and love to see Ebs getting so much love for this goal. I wonder though, are people who are not Oilers fans finding it easy to vote for him because of his WJC heroics and the fact that for a couple of years he was "Canada's kid"? Would people have been voting for this play if, say, Paajarvi was the one to score the exact same way in the same circumstance? Just curious
Really good question. I think his WJC heroics play a fairly significant part in why people like him so much. Also his "kid next door" demeanor. Ebs is probably one of my favorite Oilers, if not favorite at times, and I cannot put my finger on why. It's probably a number of things.
