As much as I don't think Ebbett brings anything to this team, we have much bigger problems. No matter who we put on the 4th line, if guys like the Sedins, Kesler, Burrows, and Roy can't produce we're not winning.

why is Schroeder not playing? get ebbett out of the line up. this makes me mad. its like he forgets what doesn't work.
Lappy is a 4th line centerman, and thats where he should stay.

Sedin's Burrows
Roy Kesler Kassian
Raymond Higgins Hansen
Wiese Lappy Pinnizotto
or
Sedins Burrows
Roy Kesler Higgins
Raymond Schroder Hansen
Wiese lappy Kassian

this lappy third line BS needs to stop.

Yup.

Lapierre has proven to be a great 4th line C, not really much more.

But lets see something... Who, throughout the season actually showed chemistry with Hansen and Raymond? Thus contributing overall to Vancouver actually MAKING the playoffs?


Schroeder. The kid who dominated in AHL play after being sent down. I guess it's to much to ask to bring a great playmaking center to play on a line that will actually turn into something, isn't it?

Absolutely dumbfounded why this kid isn't back in the lineup. Unless it IS an injury, but I haven't seen anything in that regards yet... But as far as I know, Schroeder will contribute a HELL of a lot more than Ebbett ever will for this team.

Why so much hate on Ebbett? He didn't do anything that costed us the game last night... CDC always has to have a scapegoat instead of actually thinking.

Can Gillis waive him? This is beyond ridiculous. If AV won't bench Ebbett voluntarily, MG needs to step in and do something about it. Regardless, we aren't going anywhere without #35 in net.


1.Ebbett is not the problem
2.Luongo took the Canucks to game 7 of the finals.
3.Love your consistent illogical bias.

Yup. One game in and we're already down to three lines. Realistically, game 2 is pretty well a must win given the Sharks' home record this year, in which case AV will likely be running the first two lines ragged and throw in the third line for a few shifts. I'd be surprised to see the fourth line get many shifts tomorrow.

So where is this organizational depth that Mike Gillis has built up in his 5 years here and that he speaks so much of?


Its in the net, the team first guy who wouldnt accept a trade is getting his wish, het gets to be the number 1, too bad the team is paying for it now...

IF AV keeps using the 4th line as a punishment it will never produce

As a result we won't be able to roll 4 lines like every other Stanley Cup Champion in the past 20 years.

It should be your most consistent line, with the limited playing time they have they need to build chemistry over a larger amount of games.

Move around the top 9 if you must but leave the 4th line to the energy checkers and play them!! So they don't feel punished.

Gaunce hasn't played a minute in even the AHL, ya he looks good but lets stop overrating guys before we've seen them vs men.

Schroeder should be in, instead of ebbett, he's faster, better offensively, better defensively, and tougher on his skates...why hes not in, only idiot av knows...

granted av doesn't have much to work with and that's mg's fault (and lou's for not moving)....we dont have a 4th line and reality is you need one in the playoffs, you need the faceoff guy, the hitter, and the guy who's going tire teams out...

i expect it will be a 3 line game tomorrow


if we even manage to get out of the first round the boys will be dead bc of a lack of depth. I love this team and i am going to keep chearing till the bitter end but i didnt expect much of them this playoffs anyways.

I was hoping for a surprise, but didnt see it game one and if we dont compete for it this year, i can see Acquilini, canning both av and mg, given he's spending to the cap you have to be in the spot to compete for it (pushing for the conf finals).

time will tell, lets hope we see the team that came out vs chicago and that lou steals us a few this round.

and ballard can irritate the hell out of marleau and others

The treatment of Kassian irks me. He is a skill player, a big skill player, but a skill player nonetheless. I agree with putting Higgy and Roy back together, but not with Kesler that kills depth up the middle.

I knew I was missing someone. My bad, I meant to put him with Kesler like you did.

I also wouldn't mind seeing:

Sedin Sedin Kassian
Raymond Kesler Hansen
Higgins Roy Burrows
Pinnizotto Lappy Weise

The lack of offence is directly caused by AV screwing with chemistry every chance he gets. Him continuing to play Ebbett despite him being completely useless only further illustrates how much of an idiot AV is.

I guess the Sedins and burrows lack of scoring is because of AV too right?
