D'Agostini vs. Schremp

Both players have been long overdue to play in the NHL, and both have played well since being called up (Schremp with 1 point in 1 game, D'Agostini with 3 points in 3 games). Both were also scoring more than a PPG in the AHL this season, so they definitely have the talent.

Which of them will have more points this season?

It's hard to argue that D'Agostini was long overdue for the NHL. Last year he didn't look ready. This year he got called up in early December, that's pretty quick really.

As for who will have more points this year, it's really hard to stay. Likely whichever ends up sticking with their parent club longer. I could definitely see D'Agostini getting sent back down again if he slumps a bit, as Latendresse and Sergei Kostitsyn aren't going to stay in the press box forever.

Really a good question.. although I have to lean towards D'Agostini because of the Rangers game, he did everything right.

Wow Dagger getting recognized. I'm surprised he gained as much attention as he has on HF.

I was hoping not to see a thread involving D'Agostini. Damn Montreal fans.

Right now, I'd pick D'agostini. Schremp could score more if his linemates were playing at the top of their game. Unfortunately, the kids have struggled.

That's not to say they can't break out of the slump and start to produce. Schremp has only played once thus far, and both Nilson and Gagner are out of the lineup currently. Perhaps when all together and healthy, they can start producing the long-awaited secondary scoring 0ilerfans have been wanting.

Have you seen the "Schremp Show" posts in the Oilers board... lol. D'Agostini looks dominant and not out of place on Montreal's first line. He made that great pass to SK didn't he.

If I'm not mistaken he played great against Detroit in the preseason as well. I'd take him.

You mean Andrei Kostitsyn..yes he did. He also is the one who let go the wicked wrister at the end of the game for his second goal of the season.

Yeah sorry, AK.

I was cheering for the Rangers in that game, but man, he seems to have given the Habs a lot of jump on his own, hard to disrespect that. Schremp had an assist against Dallas.............

I would say Schremp if you're going with total points because Dago will probably be sent down at some point. Habs can't scratch Latendresse and SKost forever. If the Habs pull a trade soon to make room for him then I will vote Dago.

I think you're thinking of Max Pacioretty. He scored a fancy goal against Detroit in the preseason

I think he had little trouble fitting in because:

A. He's played on a line with Andrei Kostitsyn in the AHL before
B. Koivu can play with anyone* and make them look good.

*Kovalev is the only player that doesn't seem to work well with Koivu 5 on 5.

The recchi years don't count because those years were just horrible.

D'agostini although playing with Koivu and Andrei Kostitsyn is still a very good player because he is always in the right the position, he forces a lot of turnovers and just makes smart simple decisions.

3 goals and 1 assist in 4 games so far for D'Agostini, and he's looked great out there. Loves to shoot the puck (which the Habs desperatly need as most of the team passes..we don't have a real sniper) and has a wickid wrist shot.

He's been a little bit of a darkhorse for the Habs for a couple of years but don't let that fool you, he was very impressive in the Habs training camp a year or two ago when he was 19 or 20 and Guy Carbonneau said he reminded him of Michel Goulet.

Not a bad draft for Timmins in 2005...

1st Round- Carey Price
2nd Round- Guillaume Latendresse
6th Round- Matt D'Agostini
7th Round- Sergei Kostitsyn

Schremp will never put up many points in the NHL, hes just not talented enough to overcome his lack of heart.

Its not like Dagger is coming out of nowhere. Last season he was the best player at camp, but was sent down and had a so-so year on a terrible Bulldogs team.

We always knew he had NHL potential, but most of HF population didn't believe us because we're homer Habs fans and he was a 6th rounder.

This year he had a solid camp, and was 3rd in scoring in the AHL when called up by the Habs.

And he isn't going to stick around just because he can score, the kid is awesome along the boards, has great speed, plays well defensively and has already developped chemistry with Koivu and AK46.

That, and our only other right handed offensive player is Robert Lang, who has missed a huge number of scoring chances on the PP, getting open nets on a silver platter from passes by the likes of Kovalev and Markov.

Im most impressed with his willingness to drive the net. That's one of the major things we needed.

What a great description of Rob Schremp circa 2004. Read this article before you make uninformed comments like this. And seriously...lack of talent? Schremp may be a sub-par skater, but one thing he does not have is a lack of talent.

Schremp is an amazing player.

That said, he needs to get his head out of his ass and learn to get a better work ethic. He would be very successful in the NHL if he put in the time to be good at it. But he doesnt. So I am going D'Agnostini on this one.
