This is AV we are talking about. It's not so farfetched that he would put Ebbett in that position.

Exactly. Even if we have two regular PK forwards sitting in the box, there's no reason for Ebbett to be out there.

Kesler (when healthy)
Burrows
Higgins
Hansen
Raymond
Lapierre
Weise
Schroeder?

All of these guys are better suited for PK duty than Ebbett.

I'd limit Kesler's PK responsibilities. He is literally the only other offensive threat outside of the Sedins.

Even without him, Ebbett should not be killing penalties.

Did he not already make him 2nd line center the first two games this year?

During that entire schroeder ebbett tryout where ebbett was chosen.

This was the line up listed that first blowout against the ducks.

Daniel Sedin - Henrik Sedin - Alex Burrows
Mason Raymond - Andrew Ebbett - Zack Kassian
Chris Higgins - Maxim Lapierre - Jannik Hansen
Aaron Volpatti - Manny Malhotra - Dale Weise

Except we dont have volpatti anymore, but burrows back at center is exactly how i feel as well. It worked for us in that 5 game win streak, ebbett did not, yet im concerned were going back to ebbett if some canucks beat writers are to be believed.

Putting the call out now. Ebbett will score in the game Saturday, and everyone will love him.

Its going to take more then one goal for me...

Its going to take a solid season which I hope never comes to pass.

Infact him scoring could be brutal, Av might think hes perfectly capable of taking a large offensive role on the team and we go into playoffs with ebbett on our top line like last year after he scored a couple deflection game winners before playoffs.

Sedin Sedin Kassian

Ebbett Lapierre Weise

Second and third line could be switched since everyone is so technical with numbering the lines.

As long as he's not killing penalties, I'm fine with him on the 4th line. Not ideal but we don't have many options right now. For the PK pairs I'd rather see something along the lines of:

Higgins-Lapierre
Raymond-Hansen
Weise-Burrows

Just keep Ebbett the F%@& away from the PK and we'll give ourselves a chance to win.

I agree but every game he was up he was on the pk and looked lost, i remember the san jose game him being out for at least one goal on the pk that was completely on him. On thats hockey or during intermission on sportsnet they even did the drawing of how out of place he was on the goal. Literally was along the boards by himself as the puck was in front of the net.

Does av see stuff us fans dont or something? Right up until he was sent down he was on the pk looking completely lost. Av seems to think hes a Penalty killer.

He was on for both... and at fault for both too.

Our boy Arniel says he's a good penalty killer, so it must be true!

I said the board was bipolar.

And I don't understand how you could hate a guy if he scores a 3 goals in a game

Only if they make the net 3 feet taller.
