Vancouver Canucks place Ebbett on Waivers

---

My guess at new lines

Sedin - Sedin - Burrows
Booth - Kesler - Higgins
Hansen - Schroder - Raymond
Kassian - Lappierre - Weise/Volpatti

With Booth playing, who sits? I would think a revolving rotation of Schroeder, Wiese, Volpatti

This makes me very happy! I hate seeing plugs get playing time before prospects.

Schroeder has been great. Only complaint I had was his FO% but that has been better lately.

Good job kid!

Higgins or Kass get bumped to 4th. That's what you call depth.

I could see Kassian being benched next game.

He was absolutely BRUTAL last night, and it seemed completely due to not putting out effort. Maybe a benching will give him a wake-up call.

Why would they waive Connolly and sit Steckel just to pick up Ebbett?

Flames could use Ebbett. He didn't perform as well as he should of, that's why when Shroeder out payed him, he got to sit in the press box. I also don't see him in our future either. He is an NHL player but just not on this team.

Good news, and I say that because it's a likely indication of Booth's return. I actually hope Ebbett clears. Say what you want about him, but the guy is a great AHL player and will give the Wolves a big boost, which is only a good thing for Canucks prospects down there.

My guess is Volpatti sitting out for a few games, then switching back and forth with Weise for the rest of the year

I also like the fact that with guys like Lappy, Kassian, Weise, and Volpatti on our 4th line, we can give that line 10 minutes a night no problem

Ebbett is likely a career AHL player at this rate... his play so far this season has been brutal. I doubt anyone picks him up unless they are desperate for centermen.

This, was just a matter of time...it's probably high time that the Canucks brass tells Schroeder to find a permanent home in Yaletown close to Rogers Arena.

Nothing wrong with Ebbett, just a victim of the depth of the Canucks at centre. I wanted him out of the lineup, but simply because he was the odd man out, not because he was a bad player.

It is risky and too early for Booth so my guess is it is an attempt to help the Wolves out whose offence has been devastated by injury. Andrew Gordon took a massive barge into the boards that would have felled an elephant the other day. They were already badly hit before that.

How Gordon eventually got up and walked away from that in one piece is a miracle. (Deja vu of the Raymond incident)
