Disagree. While Manny hasn't been great. He is a faceoff specialist - something Ebbett can barely fathom; likewise with defense. And therein lies the rub most of us have with Ebbett. His inability to make plays or have defensive zone coverage make him a borderline liability. Maybe he adjusts on the fourth line but we have better options.

I am too. I think people have to remember that not only is Garrison just as rusty as the rest of the Canucks he also has never played this system or with these players. After the rust wears off and he gets used to this environment his play will pick up.

I do have to add that Raymond has been a big part of this. He's a big help defensively for Schroeder.
I think at this point, Schroeder has to be realizing that he's being auditioned for that 3rd line center role that'll still be missing when Kesler comes back. If he can prove he belongs there, he'll stick with this team in a way Hodgson hasn't.

Seems like a nice symbiotic relationship - one helps the other's defense while the other helps the other's offense.

I remember when Ryan Kesler and Aaron Miller were the only Americans on the team, in my first season as a fan (2007-08).

Trial by fire, I'm guessing. Wants to see if he can handle the minutes. We all know what the Canucks think of diminutive rookie centers who need to play sheltered minutes. =\

But look at the bright side. If he can't hack it, we'll just trade him to Buffalo for Foligno!

but i do know that him and hansen were a dynamite 3rd line in the cup run
I expect my third liners to not suck in the playoffs. Higgins and the third line did just that last playoffs. Cup run not inclusive.

My point stands. He's a utility player that is in a 2nd/3rd line role. He needs to bring SOMETHING if he's not scoring, and currently he's doing NOTHING.

wut, ebbett can make plays. it's malholtra who's lost all ability to handle the puck. no way is he a "better option" than ebbett.

winning the faceoff means nothing if you can't even get the puck out your own damn zone

which if schroeder doesn't work out longterm turns into:


sedin sedin kassian
burrows kesler higgins
booth benn hansen
weise lapierre volpatti/weise


but let's just say that at this point i'm starting to lose hope that benn signing his contract was that "doing something with another player that they have" that the potential luongo deal was waiting on.

That almost sounds worse than Jack Edwards.

Manny might not be able to make plays but he can get the puck out, he's capable of that much. Ebbett had a decent game in extremely sheltered minutes. Good for him but he didn't play anywhere near the type of competition that Malhotra does.

Chicken or the egg thing....if you don't win the face-off, it makes it harder to get the puck out of your own zone; everything else being equal (and it's not like Ebbett is THAT proficient in that skill).

It's good to see those type of stats. Schroeder has been kind of quiet offensively, but he's quietly been stellar defensively. Has he even been out there for a goal against yet? I can't recall ATM as I'm drawing a blank, but I can't remember any defensive gaffe that has led to a goal against from him.

AV not sheltering Schroeder's minutes just speaks for itself, really. Schroeder has sure built that trust from the get go, something Hodgson didn't. Schroeder has a real chance to stick with the Canucks, and be that 3C IMO. Right now, I think that it's his spot to lose. Shift him and MayRay to the third line, and we have three solid scoring lines, that can also play the defensive side of the puck.

Raymond has been a big help, which is why I think they're pretty much a package deal when making up lines. The chemistry between them is clearly there. Schroeder just needs to keep building confidence, and he'll be more inclined to play the offensive game he is capable of playing IMO.

I like what I'm seeing from him, and trust him a lot more than I ever did with Hodgson. Hopefully he can stick with us the rest of the year if he can keep playing this way.

It's mostly his skating and general quickness that has me concerned. Seems to get beat wide and out of the corners a bit more than I would like. However, as I said before, it's early and my concern is probably out of ignorance because I didn't watch him a ton in Florida.

Probably being a bit harsh; he's a perimeter player that is best used in an offensive role (if he is to be used at all) rather than a checking/defensive role (in the bottom two lines).

Actually....yes, Sedin dove trying to get the 5 on 3. The rest of the game the penalties were called fairly. Good on you. Good game. You guys deserved to win. Especially without Kesler and Booth. But that doesn't excuse Sedins dive. We imploded. The Winnik call was weak. The second penalty on Getz was weak too....only in the fact that he shouldve gotten 4 minutes for his aggressive crosschecking.

Good game. Schneider was Huge for you. Good luck the rest of the way, except against us.
