The over rated, under sized, speedy 2.0 version of Steve Kariya has yet again left you with egg on your face. Riiiiight, he was going to center the second line on the back to back presidents trophy winning Vancouver Canucks.... really? If you watched him for any of the games in Abbotsford or Chicago or anywhere else for that matter he is not 2nd line ready...

He isnt even in the top 100 in scoring in the ahl.

Its cool to root for the underdog, but at some point reality has to set in. His skill set is not serviceable in the NHL.

He deserves a chance. I have hopes this can be the Burrows thread V.2 :bigblush:

When your training ritual is eating 3 kids meals and 2 pies at McD's it'd be hard to be smaller.

To quote Evander Kane " you need to go get yourself checked out"

Andrew Ebett is nothing more than a beneficiary of the waiver rule. If the second line spot was based on skill alone, he would already be on a plane.

He may not be ready but that's not the question.. It was if he was our best option available. Him or ebbet? I'd rather give our former first rounder, who had a good camp, a chance over ebbet. If schreoder did nothing for the first 5 games then u put ebbet in. Hope av proves me wrong

Ebbett would have been picked up by another team if we put him on waivers. Then if Schroeder fracked up or couldn't handle it, that spot would be empty again, and we'd be back to square one...

This way, Ebbett gets a chance, for 3-4 weeks I imagine, to see if he can handle the load until Kesler comes back.. But if he can't handle it, try bringing up Schroeder again without him being snatched by another team...

That's why I'd put vandemmer down and keep ebbet up. Isn't vandemmer on a 2 way?

Two-way contracts have no effect on waivers. Vandermeer would have had to clear waivers.

Ah, the obligatory "fat Wellwood" crack. I'm betting that if there were an 18 goal scoring center out there for what Welly is getting paid this year there would be a clamour on this board to get him. Letting Wellwood walk was a stupid move IMHO. His rep here was carved in stone by the ignorami of CDC before he ever had so much as a practice for us. He is much better than anybody here seems to think.

I actually really like Wellwood so you don't need to preach to the choir.

fans of a team supporting a first round pick who played well!? oh the shame you make me feel right now.. you can take your two presidents trophy argument to the training staff and ask when keslers coming back bud. we are low on options and damn us for wanting to see the best center option in our system get a shot.

Schroeder may be a little short, but he also tested as one of the strongest overall players in his draft class at the NHL Draft Combine.

Placed 4th on the 150 lbs bench press

He has the strength to play in this league, just needs an opening. I'm sure he is first in line on call ups for injuries.

Addressing the fan base isn't really Canucks Talk and there is a thread already in progress that you could have presented your thoughts in.

To pull a hit and run, in which you cut down others without responding to the ongoing rebuttals, is trolling.
