Okay that was just too funny on too many levels. Image

They were given lots of opportunity to rediscover their game and produced mediocre results. This season I don't think the coaching staff will be afraid to look for other options if they continue to struggle.
Well said CT.

Ebbett would make it only if a young player falters or if he can somehow grab the 13th forward spot. They know what they have in Ebbett, and he's just a depth forward.

If Schroeder outperforms Ebbett, there's no reason why he wouldn't make it over Ebbett.
So you think there's a chance that Raymond would be sent down/put on waivers outside of Raymond playing like an ECHL-calibre player? Gillis tried to trade Raymond last year and couldn't. Unless there's a team willing to trade for Raymond, Raymond will be a Vancouver Canuck to start the season. No one is beating out Raymond for a roster spot.

I agree with you on Ebbett. The team needs 2nd line centre options and if Schroeder clearly beat out Ebbett, I think Schroeder will make the team over Ebbett. Interestingly, Ebbett now has a 2-way contract with an AHL salary of $300K, which subjects him to recall waivers. I wonder how much we should read into this.

Well if you beat the wiener too much...
A long time ago, a baseball player remarked: "If I owned a ballclub, I'd hire a $5,000 coach and a $15,000 scout."
