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.
Nope, not quite nothing. He subtracts better players from the lineup. So he's worse than nothing.
When he got knocked into the San Jose bench, I was hoping he would stay there. I don't actually have a problem with Ebbett. He's being told to to play and he is doing it. AV is the idiot that keeps putting him out there. When Raymond was playing like garbage in past seasons, AV would repeatedly throw him on the 2nd line which caused people to hate on Raymond when it was really AV trying to force something that would never ever work. I am so sick of AV. His hate for Ballard is worse than my hate for him.
Hes Useless. 1 Hit and 1 Shot last night and didnt take any faceoffs... I mean cmon, put Schroeder in.
The 4th line combine for 10 hits last night and Ebbett only provided 1 of those and it was rubbing out the defense on the forecheck which was pretty surprising because he usually turns away instead of finishing his check. He provided nothing last night in a game where his line mates were playing physical
I think Ebbett and Rome either have naked photos of AV or AV is the dumbest coach the Canucks have ever had... take your picks.
I'd kill for Rome to be on this roster right now. He's an NHL-quality, bottom pairing defenceman. The problem with him was that AV was using him like a top 4 D. The problem with Ebbett is that he's an AHL-calibre player who shouldn't be anywhere close to a team with cup aspirations for more than a game or two.
edit: that is to say that I'd kill for Rome with the provision that AV wasn't around to fawn over him.
