His potential is still there, but people keep mentioning his hockey IQ, or lack thereof. He's young, so lots of time; not overly concerned about it.
For some reason, the main flaw in his game, one on ones, he continues to be horrible with. His poor gapping and backward skating result in Ebert constantly being beaten to the outside. That is stuff he should have learned im minor hockey so he either has not had the coaching (including three years with the Spits) or he has an inability to grasp the concept.
