Ebbett has been fine. He's just a whipping boy for fans but he's a lot more reliable defensively, more experienced, and has something like 8 shorthanded goals in his career.
His AHL numbers are better than JS's too.
Who gives a damn where he's drafted? Schroeder's brief stint with us was Raymond's best games. Sure, the kid struggles offensively but he was a revolving door and somehow put on the powerplay point - he was put in a position to fail. You are evaluating him when he simply had little opportunity to succeed. Our best lines have been Higgins/Roy/Kesler and Raymond/Schroeder/Hansen at different points during the season. Why not go back to what works?
