Yep. But mark my words, Ebbett/Schroeder's line will be destroyed in the playoffs. I know people give him a lot of crap, but I think Ebbett should get the start on the 3rd and it's his to lose.
There is no reason Ebbett should have a spot that is his to lose. He has 3 points this season outside of one flukey game against nashville.
He's dreadful in the faceoff circle 38% vs Schroeder's 44%.
Roy and Hank can take the left-handed draws if need be, Ebbett is terrible. He's just not a player that should ever have a gifted spot, and now that we've seen what Raymond looks like for an extended period, it is pretty obvious to me this team is better with JS over Ebbett.
Destroyed is a touch dramatic there too. I don't recall JS' line ever getting 'destroyed' this year. Let he and Lappy alternate depending on the opposition. Honestly think it gives us a better chance to win.
I really like the higgins roy kesler line tonight, its how I thought it should be, what a tough night to audition that configuration though. When I watch the hawks games they are working incredibly hard this year, when I watch the canucks I see a much more laid back effort.
Were going to need hamhuis and Garrison to be big again tonight.
