I realize that it's basically fourth line players but ending up with Ebbett instead of Volpatti...something had better be in the works because this makes absolutely no sense.
Unless Volpatti can play centre, he was not going to replace Kesler. MG could waive Barker instead of Volpatti. What is the point of keeping Barker? He is at best the 8th defenseman on this team. As bad as Alberts has been, AV still has him ahead of Barker. What is the point of carrying so many defensemen when the major concern is up front right now?
