Would you trade for Rob Schremp??
 
I was looking through prospect, and one jumped out at me. I've always liked this guy.

Would you trade for Rob Schremp? He hasn't panned out to be the type of player Edmonton was hoping for, but they have Gagner, Cogliano etc... Schremp is just swimming there, I say why not go fishing?

We could think of a bunch of offers, Schremp to me seems like a quality first line center.

Who would we trade for him, and what are your thoughts about it.

Belso 07-28-2008 04:47 PM

I'd put him with Sergei Kostitsyn :)

It's worth a look. But is he really out of their plans?

JHabs 07-28-2008 04:59 PM

Well I remember back at Draft Day Pierre McGuire said that Rob Schremp had not developed like the Oilers had hoped for. We have a surplus of quality defense, and Edmonton could use a few good ones. We need that #1 center, regardless if hes short term or long term I think it would be beneficial to both teams. Rob and Sergei played during his blow out year in the OHL so it could be a great deal.

Actually that's a good suggestion and he could possibly be had for Weber or Subban (Gotta give to get, folks)


The skills are obviously there, though I am under the impression his main weakness is poor work ethic (which doesn't bode well for anybody, no matter how good their skills are)

what about fisher, I think he,s the most expendable d-prospect

Le Tricolore 07-28-2008 06:02 PM

I've never liked Schremp. He seems to be all flash (all you ever hear about about him are his shootout moves...). I've never been impressed by his play.

No need for another Corey Locke

Brisk-Illusion 07-28-2008 06:48 PM

I would do it, but we already lack roster space for our NHL-ready prospects, do we really need more young talent stuck in Hamilton ?

If anything, we should trade youth for experience, not the other way around.

But that could always be with what management hes with, and what team he has. He reached 100+ points with Sergei and the gang in the OHL so I think the Work Ethic is there, you can say he was fed the puck or he had a good team, but he was the one who had to create/finish plays. If hes surrounded by the right environment with the thought of having a decent shot at the NHL he might change. So the change of scenery might be in need.

Wasn't the knock on him his attitude? Gainey doesn't like those kind of guys.

Fozz 07-28-2008 06:55 PM

I don't know... Ribeiro #2?
This guy is a prima dona. Sure, he's skilled but how well would he fit in the locker room?

I remember reading about him being like that in the past. But I wonder if he might have changed after spending sometime in the minors.

Blades 0f Steel 07-28-2008 07:45 PM

Who was that Leaf player that was waived last year and everyone shat their pants over him?

Edit: it was Gamache


Anyway, if the Habs can't help Grabovski along, no way they can show any patience or make room for Schremp. I hear MacTavish can't stand the kid.

I'd much rather see Gainey take advantage of a situation similar to Thornton or Jokinen. Top centers available for very cheap. It doesn't happen very often, but meh, the Habs can make due until someone comes along. Of course, this is assuming Mats doesn't sign.

Beakermania* 07-28-2008 08:15 PM

Schremp is a prima donna... attitude problems galore, Montreal is not the right environment for him...

Blades 0f Steel 07-28-2008 08:21 PM

Schremp would be much better than Latendresse.

Haha, you waited for 15, sly dog.

toshiro 07-28-2008 09:45 PM

Shremp doesnt have the skating speed. Maybe for Dandenault:handclap:

Phil Parent 07-28-2008 09:46 PM

Like many have said, it's not a question of talent....but those types don't flourish here. Too many temptations, too many chances to get into trouble.

Unless they are like Kovalev and they are more of the "I'm a star. If you don't believe it, just watch me." kind where they will be in heaven being adulated and doing what they want. Which ain't a problem with a coach like Carbo, because he's best friends with a guy like that (Roy).

Make no mistake, Kovalev IS a prima donna. But he's the kind who will love it here because he gets to be a STAR, be in ads, in papers, etc...Schremp doesn't care that much about being a star or being good. He just loves the life of a star. And the money. And not being bothered with media and fans and those nuisances. Kinda like Ribeiro.

I'd pass.

le_sean 07-28-2008 09:50 PM

Schremp is garbage. He's a shootout and PP specialist, that's it. He's slow, weak and lacks maturity/drive. He's a slightly better version of Locke.

Chet-Nick 07-28-2008 10:19 PM

I wouldn't touch Schremp with a ten foot pole. In sports, you're usually compared with those from your draft class. A numbers of kids, from the 2004 draft, are already in the NHL. With a few more that have seen some action and are knocking on the door. Despite the pre-draft hype. Schremp came in with some baggage. That's why he dropped (25th overall). :shakehead

Analyzer* 07-28-2008 10:50 PM

I doubt he makes the Oliers this year.

prevail 07-28-2008 11:34 PM

I've spoken to him a few times. He DOESN'T have a bad attitude, he just likes to win and people mistake his determination as bad.

He never had a problem in London whatsoever. So don't believe everything 1 person said about his attitude when they barely know the whole story.

He actually comes on hockey boards sometimes but will never reveal himself.

LyricalLyricist 07-29-2008 03:20 AM

I'd get him for weber or something. The guy had a PPG in the AHL this year. He's clearly improved. The reality is, whether he becomes a 2nd line center or a first line center, both of which aren't unlikely, he'd be worth it. I've never actually seen an event(if u have one, make sure its recent if u post it) where he's been a prima dona. I think it's an exaggeration. People see him do a couple shootout moves and assume that's all he is, it's pre judging. He was a cocky kid and I assume he's matured. I could be wrong, but like others have said, spending 2 years, maybe a 3rd in the minors isn't gonna feed the cockiness.

VirginiaMtlExpat 07-29-2008 04:16 AM

Buy low, sell high. His value is still low, and the Habs do indeed have a paucity of centermen as well as a large number of defencemen.

hototogisu 07-29-2008 08:13 AM

No thanks. If Schremp didn't have those fancy shootout moves, none of us would even know his name.
