Probably not that much because Edmonton must think he is not NHL ready, he has tons of skills so I'm not sure what the problem is or why he hasn't been given a chance. Being an Avs fan I see Edmonton a lot, and sure seems like they could use a playmaker like Schremp on their team. Oh well I guess thats their call not mine.
I would say a mid to high draft pick 2nd-4th would probably be sufficient to get Schremp. Edmonton really can't play the "he is our top prospect card" because they don't treat him like that. I would love for the Avs to acquire Schremp to add some depth to our prospects, seeing as how we really don't have any good depth.
The deal with Schremp is he gets passed on the depth chart too often. He has immense skill but the application is suspect.
And with Cogliano, Gagner and Nilsson all passing him then the acquisition of Cole it doesn't really leave a spot for him to fit in. I agree that he needs a shot and this topic gets debated at great length on the Oiler boards so I don't want to hash it all out again.
I'd say right now Schremp isn't going anywhere unless a deal blows Tambo out of the water. Because with the first injury, Schremp is the first callup.
Schremp although not taking the bull by the horns this year, was a victim of circumstance to some degree. He transformed himself this summer and improved on his deficiencies. He would have likely made the team out of camp but the uncertain goalie situation is currently eating a roster spot, also, after a few years of a failed team toughness strategy, MacT wanted a roster spot for a heavyweight again.
Schremp came in to the organization at the wrong time, we lacked someone with his skill-set for what seems to be forever, and the lack of depth always atleast gave guys like him a chance in the organization (whether or not they flourished or not is another story).
All that being said, I'd much rather keep him around this year, since he has taken a great leadership role in Springfield and has vowed to be the teams hardest working player on a daily basis. His mental toughness and character will hopefully translate to the NHL level shortly, and hopefully his offensive skill-sets can be complimented by an improving defensive game. If there was a trade to be made that could help the Oilers, say for a better than average checking centerman or an upgrade at another position, I'd definitely consider Schremp in the package. However, to trade him away for mid-round draft picks or other underachieving prospects is really a shame, specially after seeing how hard hes worked and continues to work.
I can all but guarantee that Rob Schremp will not be going in a one-for-one deal unless it is for a rental. Even then, it's unlikely that it would happen. Trading Schremp makes zero sense from an Edmonton perspective unless an impact player is coming back. And for those of you that would like to misinterpret that statement, that does not mean that Schremp is worth an impact player by himself.
i agree with the team under acheiving right now bring him up and send a message to the team play or sit. If mact gives schremp a shot i do not think he will regret it. Even if he does not paly well the message was sent to the rest of the guys
