Andrew Ebbett - The Little Engine That Couldn't

What does Ebbett bring to the table that gives him a spot on a playoff roster?

Grit: No
Offense: No
Size: No
Speed: Meh
Faceoffs: No
Toughness: No

Replace him with pretty much anyone else, at least the other plugs like Sestito and Pinnizzotto can each provide at least one of the qualities listed.

Not an everyday player, and especially not an everyday playoff player. Can fill in on the fourth line for a game or two, but that should be about it.

Ebbett is on survival mode every time he is out there to not get hurt.

He is only there to replace the missing part in AV's heart for Rome.

This pretty much sums it up, he is a good player for filling in and is capable of playing well in small doses yet AV keeps playing him game after game when there is better options for the 4th line sitting in the press box

At this point I would take almost any of the black aces on the 4th line instead of him.

I feel like I'm watching a teenage boy house league player compete with men every time he is on the ice.

Even with the AV-plug-love, I would have rather had another guy who you know is going to bang on that line. I really don't understand the Ebbett fixation.

Darren Archibald has looked good all year, I don't know how he'd react to being throwin into the fire but he can't be as bad as him.

Yeah, no.

Ebbett belongs in the AHL.

FOR LIFE.

Don't know why he was in the lineup in game 1. Especially since we didn't need anymore centers. He was playing wing... on the fourth line.

We need bigger bodies (on the fourth line). That's also why Alberts is in over Ballard right? Doesn't make sense.

Ballard would've been a better option on the 4th line than Ebbett. Heck I'd rather have Gaunce/Archibald or some random WHL signing or College signing (oh hey Lain). But alas no such luck.

Not saying it does it but if you get energy from the 4th line from their crashing and banging and they aren't hemmed in their own end it makes everything go a little better.

little impact? Look at Weise today and how he hits and bring energy. Look at St Louis Reaves who bruised up Doughty all game. In a best of 4 series that stuff matters.

Being forced to ice someone like Ebbett says a lot about our C depth.

Yeah, it's Andrew Ebbett's fault.

Nevermind that guys like Kesler, Burrows, Roy, and the Sedin's were utterly ineffective, let's pin our problems on a 4th-line winger like Ebbett.

Hey, he's 6'6", must be comparable to Brent Burns, right?

Reading comprehension sure seems difficult around here. The question isn't whether Ebbett is the reason we lost, it's what does he add to our lineup? The answer is quite simply, nothing...absolutely nothing.
