Ebbett Move

Postby bwyant32 on Tue Feb 04, 2014 12:11 pm

I'm perplexed by this move because we just lost Pyatt last night, not really an Ebbett fan anyway but are we clearing a roster space for someone coming off injury or is this just something to get him more playing time at WBS?

Probably trying to save a little room on his waiver exemption. By my count, he's got 3 games or 9 days left before his exemption is up. No need to have him sitting around doing nothing, as he has been.

Ebbett was playing some really good hockey when he got injured. Hopefully, getting a lot of minutes in WBS will get him back in shape.

Vitale must be close, no?

I am pretty sure there are deadlines for having to be in the AHL to be able to play in that league during the Olympics. The timing of this move may be related to that and I wonder if Megna will make it down in time.

Ebbett should have been sent down as soon as he was off IR, rather than sending down Sill at that time.

penguins's avatarRT @PensInsideScoop Tony Granato filling in at forward on #Pens 4th line. They are short a man today with Pyatt out & Ebbett sent to WBS -SK - 12 minutes ago

someone is coming back I think.

Sounds like Tony Granato is making a comeback as a player/coach (E4)

Maybe Engo will be playing 4th line wing as a way to keep Botuzzo in the line up. Def adds toughness to the line up with he and Botuzzo in there. Add in glass thats some big guys to deal with.
