Comparing an AHLer like Ebbett to a legit NHL d-man like Rome or even a depth grinder like Glass is just ridiculous. Vigneault didn't have "man-crushes" on those players, they were just better and more reliable from game to game than the other depth options AV has been given. AV's act is wearing really thin with me too, but this whole "man-crush" stuff has always been garbage. It's not AV's fault he has had crap for depth forwards.

I'm not sure it makes a big difference as far as playing Ebbett vs. Pinner/Sestito, although on the wing I'd prefer Sestito. If AV wants to load up Kesler and Roy on one line Ebbett is really the only option left for fourth line center. Unless they want to give Gaunce a shot. I doubt it could hurt to try him for one game.
