Brule is my favorite player so I'd love to see him do well in Edmonton...but watch out cuz he put together a great training camp and just didn't get it together during the season.

Say what you want about Brule's development in the Columbus system, but he has done nothing to warrant a spot in the NHL to this point. There's a reason he was unloaded for Torres, and it isn't because Torres is a great find. That being said, I would agree that his "game" (as it is) is better suited for the Oilers' 4th line, but that isn't saying a whole lot of positives about him since he was drafted as an elite offensive player. Schremp appears to be doing all the right things, but he'd be useless on a traditional 4th line. I'd say both are in the AHL to start the year, unless Schremp wows the Oilers' brass and forces his way into the top nine.

I never trolled anyone, just called them out. There's no law against the statement of fact.

At this rate, the Oilers will likely roll with 3 scoring lines. So the real question is, who is better for the 2nd or 3rd scoring line??? Brule or Schremp???

The checking line will likely be Moreau-Brodziak-Pisani

I think MAP is more ready for that gig than Broz is BBO. Kyle did well last year but his GF/GA was on the wrong side of the ledger last season and he pretty much only played against chumps. Not surprising for a 1st year player but and needs more time and seasoning on the 4th line. MAP on the other hand - aside from that awful first few games to start the season where they played him on the wing (bad idea) - did better against tougher competition and has a more developed two way game. Plus he's bigger. As long as the kid comes to camp in shape (big if I admit) then he's the best option other than bringing in Peca for one year.

As for Brule......a season in Springfield getting his head and game together is just what he needs. He was badly mishandled in Columbus.

I'm not so sure about that AO, but both have the potential to fill that role. I like Pouliot on a line with Nilsson and Schremp because he played a fair bit with Schremp last year, and Schremp played roughly 20 games wih Nilsson 2 seasons ago. That'd be a solid line. Either way, IMO our 3rd scoring line would be pretty solid.

As for Brule, I couldn't agree more. We need to do what Columbus should've done LAST year and send him down for a good chunk of the season to get his offensive game going.

Here's hoping Schremp breaks through and dominates at TC.

The reality is I don't see either getting much NHL time during the next season.

Brule will be the number 3 center this year for the Edmonton oilers

Scrhemp will be on the farm


MAP in Europe

Both have great junior level talent but what they have doesn't translate to the NHL. Reminds me of names like: Jock Callander; Pat Falloon; Len Barrie; Brian Sakic etc.

Kyle had a pretty solid 80 nhl games last season compared to MAP's 24 (and 55 in the ahl at -11).

If you're going to discount a few bad games MAP had at the start of the year and give him credit for a good season then you're left with a pretty small sample size. Kyle had a full 24 game stretch to end the season where he was +5 with 15 points.

I think MAP made some good strides at the end of last season and it'll be nice to see what he can do after a healthy season and off-season but I don't think he's caught up to KBro yet. He's still just proving he deserves to be an nhl starter imo.

Agree totally and re:Schremp I think he will if given the chance. His style doesn't really jive with MacT though so I wouldn't count on him getting a chance.

Eberle is not AHL eligeabe.

So if both start in the AHL, who fills out the top 12??? Stortini??? Reasoner??? It's time for Brodziak and Pouliot to grow as players, having Reasoner around stunts that growth. As for Stortini??? If he wants $1 million, I'd let him rot and play a number of different guys on the farm ahead of him for between $200,000 and $550,000 less than him.

Awesome!! love this

From what I've heard of Brule and from what I've seen of Pouliot, this would make more sense.
