I think the center position is where the Canucks are going to need some outside help. Assuming Schroeder is in the NHL permanently next year, who do the Canucks have that is top 6 center caliber at the AHL level? Lain? Fresen? Mallet? No way. We all love to complain about Ebbett but I think he's the perfect guy to keep around as a top line center in the AHL. He's proven to produce at that level.
Problem here is that the coaching staff won't, unfortunately, be able to resist the temptation to bring up Ebbett and play him full time.

Get your point and probably good one but man I like to see the last of Ebbett.
