TSN's mock draft has the Predators taking Robbie Schremp - I would be ecstatic if the Predators nabbed him. Some have said Schremp is among the top three most talented in the draft. But, on the other hand - it's said that Schremp has a bit of an attitude problem (which is the only reason he'd fall to begin with).

Personally - I would easily pass on Chipchura for Schremp.

What do you think the likelihood of the Predators nabbing Schremp would be?
I'd like us to take a reach pick. We haven't really gambled a whole lot on our first rounders. When you take safe picks like Upshall, Hartnell, Suter, you can oftentimes miss out on the best players (Havlat, Hossa, Frolov). We are stable enough in our prospect core that we can afford to take this gamble. We have only one weakness (center) and every problem doesn't have to be solved by the draft. Trades and free agency could do wonders for us.
