Ebbett is a healthy scratch or a 4th line LW. Schroeder can't play wing at the NHL level yet.

The Hansen - Schroeder - Raymond line wasn't very good. For a line getting easy 2nd line minutes JS produced at a miserable clip, some due to bad luck but mostly due to not being good enough.

AV sheltered JS with easy matchups, it's a very stupid move to do the same when the Kesler/Roy line is better suited to score.

I don't know how anyone can advocate giving JS the 3rd line C when Lappy has proven he's much better in the role.

Maybe Schroeder in a 4C spot if someone gets injured. He can't handle the matchups SJ will throw at us, theres literally nothing he's shown this season that says he's ready to go against Thornton, Couture or Pavelski.
