Can we doom and gloom about Ebbett? Maybe Bieksa?

A little bit about Beeksa. And absolutely about Ebbett.

Actually, **** all the Andrews on this team.

Thank God we don't have to deal with PPV's and NON-TELEVISED games anymore. I remember some games solely being available on CKNW during the WCE era. We didn't even have streams back then

I remember our 8-1 romping of the Isles was only available on CKNW. That sucked.

Pretty sure every GDT for the rest of the season will be Roy-themed.

There was no reason to hate Ebbett even before he started to have a couple decent games.

I agree. You need to keep him fresh for the playoffs. I would hand pick a couple of easy games on the schedule and see if he can build some momentum / confidence before the playoffs start.

Crazy to think that if he does start tomorrow, it could be his last home start in a Canucks uniform.

Yeah I'd be okay with Lu starting. Phoenix has been heating up lately but I'm not worried about it. I've always been more concerned with scoring goals against them, not with preventing them.

He was playing 14-17 minutes a night.

There's no logical reason Ebbett should be playing more than 10 minutes.

He's slow, he doesn't put up points, he can't make a pass, he can't for-check, he doesn't cause turnovers... he's tops on 4th liners in give-aways, despite playing less games than most of them, ... he doesn't hit, he's small so there's no fear of him... he almost never shoots (one of the lowest shot totals on the team)...

That's still no reason to hate Ebbett.

I agree. Luongo needs to see some action, but I have a feeling AV will make his decision based on the results from Minny's game tonight. If they win, then Schneider will probably be in, if they lose, then I think there's a better chance Luongo might get the start.

I'm still talking about people hating Ebbett for no reason, as a hockey player. Ebbett isn't the one to blame for being given more than 10 minutes a night.Is Ebbett the one to hate for being put into situations he is only going to fail in? Is Ebbett the one to hate for being put into situations he clearly doesn't have the skillset for?

I don't think so at all. Ebbett isn't the one to hate here. He's doing to best in the situations he's being put in, that he simply isn't good enough for. It's quite unfair for him IMO. It's like putting Sestito with the Sedins, and expecting him to produce like Burrows can with them. Yet when Sestito doesn't produce like Burrows, would he be the one to hate, according to fans? After seeing Ebbett get hate like he has, I don't think fans hating Sestito the same way is out of the picture, honestly.

Ebbett is a good player when he isn't getting a good chunk of minutes, and being handed big responsibilities. Like I said, he's being put into situations where he is simply going to fail, and simply just isn't good enough, but he isn't to blame for that.

I didn't truly believe in the scapegoating stuff until the Ebbett treatment this year.

He's a 13th forward who's solid in that role and has more icetime/responsibilities because of all the injuries and he's more of a veteran than guys like Schroeder/Kassian in PK situations.
