That Ebett Kassian combination is a failure.

That was this play in the third period when Ebett got the puck in the slot with no one around. Guess what, instead of focusing on the goal, he suddenly skated to the boards and then cycled the puck to Kassian behind the net. That wasn't an NHL play. That was an ECHL play. In the NHL, you go for the net. Just watch some Brett Hull videos to get a clue. This team is horrible without Kesler and real NHL talent.

Yeah, I was at the game. Our goaltending was definitely sub-par

Ebbet looked terrible. Ballard was awful. Kassian was OK, but seemed a bit lost at times.


Garrison and Edler looked great. VOlpatti had a lot of energy.

Lots to improve on. Back on the grind tomorrow!

Maybe we should examine the ethics behind being mad at non-human PVR's.

Listening to those on the TEAM that went to the game.

First game of the season.Sloppy play all around.

It's a write-off.Insert a team of rookies.

I've been an Ebbett fan for a long time now but he is not a top-6 forward. His game is best suited for a 10-12 minute 3rd or 4th line checking role with a bit of offence.

Kassian was amazing tonight, Weise was surprisingly good as was Hansen and Volpatti. Of our entire forward group, the only ones that really disappointed me tonight were Burrows, Ebbett, Raymond and Malhotra. Shame two of them are centers.

ebbett is far too small for a bottom 6 role.

he should only play top 6 or not at all.

I agree with you about ebbett, would be fine on the third. I thought kassian sucked tonight, had two shifts you even saw him one the ice, for the second line not cutting it... Ok for the 4th line. Whose was great tonight, burrows didn't forecheck, or do anything? Was malholtra even playing? Didn't see him (not a good thing).

The problem wasn't really Ebbett, it's that Ebbett and Raymond were on the same line.

It's obvious by now that Raymond is not very strong on the puck, nor a very good checker. Ebbett's biggest drawback is obviously his size. Those two combined make it easier for the other team to dominate physically. Kassian looked great, but I think the lines should be re-arranged

Raymond - Lapierre - Kassian
Higgins - Ebbett - Hansen

The feistiness of Higgins and Hansen can make up for Ebbett's lack of size and Lapierre & Kassian can kick ass.

Edit: Or even Manny on that 3rd line to give it a checking line feel...

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Raymond - Lapierre - Kassian
Higgins - Malhotra - Hansen
Volpatti - Ebbett - Weise

Ebbett isn't the perfect 4th line center, but I think that maximizes the potential for the 1st-3rd line and the 4th could be used a little more sparingly depending on the situation.

Ebbett looked awful. Ebbett combined with Raymond made it even worse.

No can do. He has to go through waivers to get sent to the AHL and Gillis doesn't want to lose this gem of a player.

Schroeder may be better offensively but that's not the reason we lost tonight.

Agreed.
Schroeder may not be better defensively than Ebbett or can play all three forward positions as Ebbett can and has zero NHL experience to be thrown into the first game of the season,but those are not the reasons we lost tonight.

How do you expect someone to gain NHL experience without being thrown into games? Wouldnt it make more sense to play him in a meaningless game, like the first game of the season?

Ebbett needs some guidance on that line, not somebody that seems as out of place as he does.

OMG SUNDIN.

The word fear is not in our dictionary, it is in the eyes of the enemy.

The objective of war is not to die for your country, it is to make the enemy die for theirs.

Apparently this isn't the PGT or Schroeder discussion thread either. It didn't matter to the OP, why should it matter to me?
