But yes, someone should slap AV for playing Ebbett this much.

We're supposed to be a team contending for the cup, not a rebuilding team.

Great pass on the PP, Ebbet, wow.

Was the pro scout for the Canucks a write of the Vancouver Province or something?

if you want to be a fighter with a visor, mandatory to remove the visor, they need to make helmets with quickly removable visors then *shrug*? i dont know. something needs to be done. and break a pinky? you can break alot of bones in the hand that leaves you out for a long time.

Ebbett on the PK is the equivalent of Ryan Johnson


Without the shot blocking.

Coach is absolutely part of the problem. The Sharks first unit put the puck through Ebbet 2-3 times on that first powerplay and YET he still had him out there to start the PK time and time again. At least put Ebbett on the 2nd PK unit if you have to. How long does it take to figure it out?

Playing Ebbett this much means we're a rebuilding team now?

Just one of those games. I don't think we're mad, just flabergasted at our luck. Could've easily been a 4-4 game.

the league needs to get their **** together and do something about this
Normally Murray does take his helmet off before he fights. That one just came together quickly enough that there was no time.

and huge props to Volpatti for standing up to Murray. It might not have worked out, but he's got bigger balls than most for at least giving it a go.

It's been longer than that. Their record coming into this game was their 2nd best start in Vigneault's tenure, as sad as that is. People were just happy to pin the early struggles on Luongo but that excuse is gone now.

If AV doesn't play favorites, he should have no problem benching Bieksa after this one.

Don't fight if you don't want to break your hand...EVERY player should have to wear a visor, fighter or not.

It seems like AV actually rewards players for playing awful. Have some PP time Ebbet.

Maybe people are tired of hearing it but I've been saying he should be fired for like 4 years. Even when the team is good he holds them back (see playoffs). Just not a fan at all but he keeps getting extended.
