This has nothing to do with MacT as he has been benched or had limited ice time on many teams, including last year.
IMO Schremp has a great attitude and knows what he has to do to make it at the NHL level but his one-dimensional game that he has shown in the past will not be enough to make it to the NHL.
Agreed, but IMO this year that won't be as big of a hurdle since he now has a full year against pro's and had a 1 game glimpse of the NHL game at it's 2nd highest level (just prior to the play-offs). That IMO shouldn't be nearly as much of an issue this year. IMO if his knee is healthy enough, he will light up pre-season and at the very least show the coaches that he can be an offensive contributor if needed later on in the year or if an injury occurs. Last year he was nearly a PPG player in pre-season despite not playing his best or having a clue defensively, at the very least he'll be a hell of a lot better this year than he was last year.
