I wouldn't go that far. I think they're pretty much a trade off at this stage (Volpatti being the better scrapper, IMO), but Weise has more potential upside.

I hope not...I just don't see the point. They play very different roles, and Ebbett has a far bigger impact in Chicago as a top-line guy than Volpatti will. If he's coming up just to ride the pine in Vancouver, you'd figure that wouldn't sit too well with the Wolves.
Unless there is an injury we haven't heard about yet, I don't know where Ebbett would fit into the lineup. He's not better than any of the forwards the team is now dressing.
If they're making room for a deal, do they need to wait until tomorrow when Volpatti clears or is there a similar exemption as with players coming off IR (where it's enough to waive the player, don't have to wait the 24 hours)?

I don't think Schroeder is going anywhere. That line might not be scoring but they've pretty much dominated possession ever since they took Weise off it.
Bringing in Jason Arnott perhaps? Saw some tweets this morning about how he's gotten over a "minor injury setback" since failing the NY physical and how his brother Wade was liking giving the Canucks a call or two about it...
