Oh crap! This is going to hit 1000 posts in an hour.

His boxcars aren't bad, but there's no place for him on the Oilers. I wouldn't be surprised if he got claimed though.

Gone 02-26-2011 11:17 AM

I was so wrong about this kid. Time to close the book.

Soli 02-26-2011 11:18 AM

As a guy with a previous hard-on for Robbie...

He's scoring at a .5PPG pace, he's an high level seamstress, he's a high level PPQB, and he'd be the 2nd leading FO% man on the team, only behind Horcoff (and I don't include Brule because the coaching staff is inept and refuse to use him as center).

we won't pick him up because he doesn't bump anyone and he's small down the center, doesn't skate up to snuff, whatever. But you know... the fanboy in me likes him. Likes him alot.

It's become pretty clear to me that Craig MacTavish could identify NHL ability in a prospect quickly

nabob 02-26-2011 11:20 AM

I would pick him up and deal Gagner in a package for Bogosian.

Spawn 02-26-2011 11:21 AM

He's basically Omark but a little older, for more NA pro experience and without as much jam.

If Omark can't stay in the lineup on a regular basis, no need for Schremp.

Wheatking 02-26-2011 11:22 AM

We already have below average forwards with tons of skill(Omark and Brule)...and neither are in the line up at the moment. We can't claim Schremp.

Robbie isnt nhl material.

mustang0304 02-26-2011 11:24 AM

The world's greatest hockey player is waived,I'm so shocked:sarcasm:

It's not his fault,It's MacT's fault:sarcasm:

Color me not surprised.

Next season, Grabner will hit the waivers too and everybody will be "why?"

Phlare 02-26-2011 11:26 AM

No Schremp please :)

Jimmi Jenkins 02-26-2011 11:28 AM

Bryan you ok, do you need a hug?

Damascus 02-26-2011 11:28 AM

Nooooo. No! No! Nooooo!!!! Gawd

spot 02-26-2011 11:28 AM

We still need to shed some dead weight. No point in picking anymore up.

No doubt.
And here I thought MacT was the cause of all things bad with the Oil in general, & Robby in particular

Props :handclap:

Refreshing to see poster owning up.


I never liked Schremp, but no shame for being high on this guy. He had so much skills, but i think it's really difficult if not impossible for scouts, coached, managements or fans to read a player's mind/determination. I think he just doesn't have enough determination to learn & improve the things that he needed to do to keep himself in the NHL like defensive skills, faceoff skills, checking skills etc.

No one can say the Oilers and Islanders didn't give him a chance.

Eytinge 02-26-2011 11:32 AM

He's just another tweener. We need more size and grit up the middle, and Schremp provides neither.

Get over it Jimmi, you have some irrational hate for Schremp that you need to let go of.

I don't hate Schremp, he's just not an NHL player, clearly.
