I'd take Ebbet in a second over Schroeder. He's actually played 163 NHL games and has scored in the NHL. He's also outscoring Schroeder in the A this year. On a team that needs to win now it makes sense to go with someone they can trust. They dont have time to audition a kid that frankly looks like he'll never be an NHL regular.
Uhh... he was 3rd on the Wolves last year in points behind 2 AHL all-stars playing on a line with freaking Sweatt and Oreskovich...

EDIT: and Schroeder has 2 more goals than Ebbett this year playing way less minutes. That's actually fairly embarrassing for Ebbett...
