We need a top six winger for sure, but I believe our bottom six is fine, although I would try and get one more tough, grinder for the fourth line which should be cheap to get from a team that is selling at the deadline. Bottom six doesn't really need any upgrading, it's fine aside from a possible fourth line upgrade with the departure of Volpatti. Can Pinizzotto solidify that spot? Not sure, that's a lot to ask from a player that's having loads of injury issues and hasn't played in the NHL.
Like I said, Ebbett is fine when he's just a filler for a game or two with limited minutes, while being played in the correct role where he can succeed in. There is no logical reason to be playing Ebbett on the PK, even though I can understand the thinking behind it.
