Good points. I think LT's main message is that Schremp is probably (likely) not ready this season for full time or even part time employment in the NHL with PP shifts. As a replacement option for Horcoff et al., he'll deliver less at ES and on the PP.
My issue is that someone feels that they can predict a players developmental curve because of 1 season by not taking into account linemates, level of competition on their own team, etc. It's people with similar beliefs that don't want Penner on their team because he's still an un-known commodity due to his less than ordinary path to the NHL as a top 6 player. IMO it is what it is, you can sometimes correctly predict the path of a player, but for every predictable player, there's a Jarret Stoll that exceeds most people's expectations, or another player that just tanks and goes off the radar (Rita, who I personally wasn't that high on).
