To Winnipeg: Andrew Ebbett + 4th Round Pick
(***Could add more or change Ebbett to a more valuable piece if needed but judging by recent trades I think this is more than fair)
The perfect fit for what we need on the 4th line. He is a LH and replaces Manny by adding a LH capable of taking big draws so we don't need to use Henrik there like we did last night.
Other than that though, he is fast, very gritty, fights, brings energy, great PKer, great shot blocker, agitator, good defensive guy, exc.
Brings what you need in playoff hockey. (For a 4th liner)
Assets: Has great speed, which he uses effectively on the forecheck (and backcheck). Also displays grit, a defensive conscience and a little offensive ability. Kills penalties and checks skilled forwards very well. Can even get under an opponent's skin.
Flaws: Needs to show more consistency in the offensive zone. Tends to play out of control on occasion. Lacks discipline on some nights. His all-out hustling style can sometimes lead to injuries, so he'd be wise to scale it back a little from time to time.
Career Potential: Speedy checking forward with great energy.
