Demoting Schroeder at this point guarantees the team can maitain as much depth as possible. Nobody had to be put on waivers (yet).
So much for Schroeder playing Sunday eh Herb?
Ebbett will have to be waived at some point I suppose.
But for now, this is why we picked him up: injury insurance.
Ebbett has experience going for him right now.
No doubt Schroeder will get some games later in the season....
Prior to the decision on Schroeder being made public, GM Mike Gillis told the Canucks flagship radio station that he expects to see the Minnesota native back at some point during the abbreviated season.
“If Jordan Schroeder doesn't start with us, we fully anticipate him playing meaningful games for us very shortly,” Gillis said.
According to Vigneault, Gillis and his assistants, Lorne Henning and Laurence Gilman, examined “all the dynamics” when making their roster moves.
“There is not just the on-ice component that's going to go into the decision,” Vigneault said. “There are (salary) cap dynamics.”
